Are your homebuying plans working?

Mark’s the tool you need.

Fixated on a fixer-upper? Motivated by a move-in ready mansion? Want more wealth? Whatever the property that’s captured your eye, Mark can help make sure it doesn’t capture your wallet. He’s level-headed about the market: when rates go up, they are counterbalanced by lower prices and less competition. He knows how to hit the nail on the head to get you into the home you want with a mortgage you can live with.

Start with a blueprint.

Mark has extensive resources to help you understand the homebuying process and build your real estate plan. The first step is to find out if you are in a position to buy and how much you can afford. Knowledge up front has the potential to save you money, time, and stress.

Build a strong foundation.

Your down payment is the foundation of your loan. Make sure you know the relationship between how much you put down and your payments later. (Hint: Cash is not always king.) There are also a number of down payment assistance programs to get you into the home you want.

Make the necessary repairs.

Credit repair can be a difficult topic, particularly for new home buyers. Check out Mark’s do’s and don’ts of building and maintaining a credit rating that could save you thousands. (Hint: just say no to store credit cards!)

Don’t be afraid of loan improvement.

Today’s high-interest rates may have you feeling screwed. Fortunately, there’s an upside: home prices are coming down and there aren’t as many bidding wars to leave you feeling hammered. Mark’s mortgage maxim is to remember that interest rates can be refinanced, but home prices can’t. Today’s price is as low as it’s going to be; today’s rate is as high as it’s going to be. So take advantage of lower prices and refinance with Mark when the rates go down.
