Are you ready to buy

Home buyers have faced tough challenges -- housing prices have risen, a dollar doesn't go as far as it once did and rent is more expensive than the past, but the economy is doing well and things are moving!

Looking for some tips to make such a large purchase? With more flexibility and a bit of financing creativity, there are many simple ways to achieve homeownership.

Financing First: The first step to knowing if you can afford a home is figuring out what financing options are available to you, including what mortgages you're eligible for and how much you need (and can afford) to put down upfront.

Learning the minimum FICO score required by lenders and understanding your own credit score are important starting points.

Many who dream of owning a home aren't sure how much they have to put down, what the lender-required minimum down payment will be (it's not always 20%), or what programs are available to help with down payments, like FHA loans.

Before buyers even start thinking about saving for a home, they should know what their financial resources are and if they're eligible to buy.

Make enough money to save: With fewer resources to pull from than their older, wealthier counterparts, renters wanting to buy face tough financial headwinds.

According to the Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends Report 2019, renter households typically earn a median income of $37,500 annually, which is nearly $40,000 less than the median household income netted by households who recently bought a home (of whom the median household income is $75,000 annually).

2 Income households can help you save enough cash: One of the most daunting parts of home buying? The down payment. In fact, two-thirds of renters cite saving for a down payment as the biggest hurdle to buying a home, according to the Zillow Housing Aspirations Report.

For people buying the national median home valued at $229,000, with the traditional 20% down payment, that's $45,800 upfront -- just to move in. While that is the norm for some, there are many cases where 20% down is not needed. Find a good lender that you can be open and honest with and they can guide you towards your goal.

Although putting down less than 20% means additional considerations, such as the cost for private mortgage insurance (PMI), some find it worth the hassle. In fact, according to the Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends Report 2019, only one-fifth of recent buyers (20%) put 20% down, and just over half of buyers (56%) put less than the traditional 20% down.

Buyers are also getting creative about piecing together a down payment from multiple sources. According to the report findings, 34% of buyers who get a mortgage also get help in the form of gifts or loans from friends and family to come up with a down payment.

Know your deal breakers, but be flexible: To get into a home -- even if it's not the home of their dreams -- some of today's buyers are considering homes and locations outside of their initial wish list and getting increasingly flexible when it comes to neighborhood, house condition and even home type.

Affordably priced homes do exist, it will just be harder to find one you love and that meets your criteria.If you are willing to be flexible and prioritize your wish list, you can most definitely find a home that will suite your needs!

If you need help finding that home, let one of our expert Taos brokers help you find a Taos condo for sale, some Taos land for sale to build the home of your dreams or a fully furnished home in Taos to hang your boots. Whether it's a vacation home for family and friends or a permanent residence in Taos, let us help you with all your real estate needs!Call 575-377-2626 or 575-758-5852 for Paula.

Pre-Winter Prep: Getting Your Home Warm and Cozy for Winter

Ready or not, the days are getting shorter, the nights are getting longer and winter in on its way! There are some simple steps to making sure your home is safe and cozy when winter officially arrives and they will keep you safer and warmer if you can do a little upkeep.

*Prepare your furnace for winter Have a pro check it out and replace the furnace filter before you begin using it daily

*Clean your fireplace and chimney Inspect the flu, doors and shield and make sure they are sound. Get the chimney professionally swept if possible and don't forget to buy firewood ahead of time!

*Keep cold air outside and warm air inside Check weatherstripping by opening a door, placing a piece of paper in the entryway and closing the door. The paper should not slide back and forth easily. If it does, the weatherstripping isn't doing its job.

*Bring in light Clean windows and open coverings for optimum sunlight and brightness to keep dreary days at bay.

*Create a mudroom to keep mud and snow tracking at a minimum

*Check batteries and test carbon monoxide detectors as well as smoke detectors. Also, it's a good idea to have an emergency kit with flashlights, batteries, water and some food and blankets just in case!

Winter-proofing your home is especially crucial when you live in mountain terrain such as Taos or Angel Fire which have very white winters.
