So imagine you’re a renter and your lease expires at the end of the year. That begs the question: When should you start looking to purchase a home?

The answer, of course, is right now! Our team will be happy to connect you with a lender who will work with you to gather basic information about your situation and determine how much you’ll be required to put down. Some buyers are even qualifying for zero-down financing right now!

You might be wondering, “If my lease isn’t up until December 31, why start the process now?” Well, it could take you weeks or even months to find the home that’s right for you, and when you do find that home, it’ll be at least a month before you’re able to close on it. Not to mention that our current market’s inventory remains low, which might also add more time to your home search.


Now’s the time to jump into the market as rents
continue to rise and interest rates continue to fall.



Plus, if you buy a house in, say, October, your first payment won’t be due until December. If you’re a renter whose lease will soon expire, now’s the time to jump into the market as rents continue to rise and interest rates continue to fall.
