The summer buying season continues to be ultra-competitive, which has been driving home prices upward. The continued myth of a required 20% down payment to purchase a home resurfaced in a recent analysis from HotPads, a company operated by Zillow. Their stats show that the average renter buying at the median home price would have to save 6.5 years to come up with that 20%, which could cause some to lose interest in the American dream of homeownership. Luckily, HFG offers choices when it comes to down payment and can cater to your financial situation. We are an approved partner with numerous state and government agencies, and many times the assistance will help to purchase a home with little-to-no money out of pocket (and maybe much sooner than was thought possible!). The programs are flexible, so call us today for more information.
Similar to our partnerships in offering down payment assistance, HFG partners with our local communities each summer for our annual charitable initiative. Since investing in our youth is very important to Homeowners Financial Group, this year we are focusing on making sure children are properly prepared to learn as school bells start ringing later this month. All of our branch locations nationwide have selected nonprofit organizations and schools in their area to assist, and we are now collecting backpacks and school supplies to donate. If you would like to get involved, a number of our offices have drop-off areas and collection events scheduled. Organizations such as Save the Family in Arizona and The Periwinkle Foundation in Texas will be receiving over $10,000 in supplies during our initiative – and we invite you to help us make it even bigger!
Thank you in advance for your generosity. Please contact us if you would like to hear more, or stop by one of our branch locations today!
