This group is for anyone looking to buy a home within the next 12 months. Learn about financing options and the housing market in the Tampa Bay Area. Hosted by licensed Mortgage Loan Originator Sarah Johnson (NMLS 1631772) and some meetups will be cohosted with a licensed real estate agent to give you relevant information from a different perspective. My goal is to provide info to first time home buyers about the process in a pressure-free environment, while also allowing you to build a relationship with the people who will (ideally) be helping you with the largest purchase of your life.
We will meet in a laid back environment to talk about the various options for first time home buyers. I am a licensed mortgage loan originator, so this will primarily focus on how to prepare from a financial perspective.
We will cover:
•documents needed to apply for a loan
•how we calculate how much house you can afford
•the 4 parts of a mortgage payment
•credit score requirements
•how to improve credit
•down payment requirements and down payment assistance programs available
•how to choose a realtor
•what are closing costs
Please, share this meetup with anyone you know who may also be interested and feel free to bring a friend. See you there!
