Q - I'm a law enforcement officer, pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade teacher, firefighter, or an emergency medical technician. What home buying programs exist to help me?

The program is called HUD's Good Neighbor Nextdoor Program! This program allows law enforcement officers, pre-kindergarten through 12 grade teachers, firefighters, and emergency medical technicians that meet HUD's requirements, to purchase homes in certain neighborhoods for 50% asking price/market value!

Q - I've never purchased a home before.  Where should I begin?

A - Actually, you've already started the process. Fact-finding and reading articles is a great way to become a smart consumer. The highest priorities to focus on before you begin searching for specific areas, neighborhoods, or homes would be to:

  • Understand your personal finances.
  • Learn about theGreater Los Angeles real estate market.
  • Carefully review your budget and begin to eliminate as much debt as possible.
  • Have a down payment and earnest money ready when the time comes to act and make your offer.
Q - How can I stay updated to current available properties? 

A - Staying updated on your favorite homes and when new homes come onto the market is easy, Sign up for an Los Angeles MLS property search and receive updates via email daily when new properties are added. 

Q - How do I avoid making a big mistake when deciding which type of loan to select?

A - Once we meet and review your finances along with your home buying needs, you should select a lending consultant. We can recommend several trusted lending professionals or you can choose your own. Having upmost confidence in your lender is important. Be sure you feel completely at ease with them.  They should speak to you in easy to understand terms.  Ask lots of questions and never sign any document until you know what you are signing and feel completely at ease signing it. More and more lending professionals are recommending fixed interest rate loans and interest rates are still very attractive. Of course, the type of loan best for you depends on several factors. Here are just a few:

  • How much money do you have for a down payment?
  • How long do you plan to live in the home?
  • Do you qualify for a FHA or VA loan?
