First Time Buyer General Information


Our First-Time Home Buyers Program is the Key.

 

 As any Weichert First-Time Home Buyer Specialist will tell you, it can be as simple as this: If you can afford between $1,500 and $2,000 a month, you can afford a $250,000 to $350,000 home. Weichert can supply a conventional, 30-year fixed rate mortgage or one of many other options to make it happen.

Introducing the Weichert First-Time Home Buyers Program:
  • Every Weichert home comes with a new mortgage so you can buy it.
    • As long as you're a qualified buyer, our affiliate, Weichert Financial Services has secure mortgage money readily available at near historic low rates.
    • We will supply a mortgage specialist from Weichert Financial to help you.
    • According to a recent independent study* assessing the credit standards of the nation's lenders, Weichert Financial Services ranks among the most reliable.
  • $5000 Performance Guarantee.**
    • We back up our promise to deliver mortgage money for the on-time closing of your new home purchase.
    • If you use our mortgage financing, homeowner's insurance, and title insurance services, we will meet your closing date or you will receive a $5,000 credit towards your mortgage-related costs at the time of settlement.
  • Our interest rates on all kinds of mortgages are near their historic lows - including fixed rate, adjustable, FHA and VA.
  • We can show you many homes currently available for sale that are in price ranges most appealing to first-time buyers.
  • You are welcome to attend a Weichert Home Buyer Seminar at your local Weichert office where they will be happy to address all your questions.
Not sure whether to buy or keep renting? Here are 10 reasons to let Weichert help you take the next step:
  • Build equity. Over time, homes have always gained in value, so you can expect to get your investment back and typically much more when you sell
  • Tax deductions. Save on taxes based on the interest and real estate taxes you pay instead of letting a landlord get the benefit.
  • Lower payments? It depends on your rent, of course, but if you can afford just 5% down, your monthly payments may actually be less than your rent.
  • Stability. While most landlords raise rents every year, you can choose a fixed-rate mortgage where the payments stay the same.
  • Suiting yourself. When the house is yours, you can fix it up and decorate it any way you want.
  • Receive credit. Money you put down and pay into a mortgage to build equity can be made available to you in the form of a loan or a line of credit.
  • Make it stop. When the term of your mortgage ends, you’ll own your home outright. Paying rent never stops
  • In control. You can choose when to move, instead of being pushed out at the end of a lease.
  • Community. Most homeowners feel a sense of belonging to their neighborhood and town that they just don’t feel as a renter.
  • Personal reasons. You’ll have more privacy and, very likely, more living area. There’s also something very satisfying psychologically to owning your own home
