Help the community by answering this question:



If you are paying $1200 rent and have no extra money at the end of the month to save for a home, Then all you can afford for a mortgage is a $1200.

1. be able to save money is the 1st test in seeing if home ownership is for you.
you will need money for emergencies to fix things.

2. Create a budget for your self so that you can see where the money is going and see where you can cut to save some money.

3. Speak to a mortgage financial person who can show you ways to improve your credit score and show what you need to do with your credit cards and any other outstanding bills and loans.

4. There may be assistance programs to help with the down payment.

5. speak with a local realtor that can help you find a mortgage person and might know about these programs.

Best wishes

It's best that you speak to a mortgage professional. You might not need a 15K down payment depending on if you qualify for a FHA or conventional loan. In addition to the down payment, you need to consider the closing costs as well.

There are many programs that allow for low or no down payment when purchasing a home in Millville or anywhere in New Jersey. It's best to sit down with a "Realtor" and discuss your situation with them so they can direct you to the program and/or lender that fits your exact need. Since everyone's circumstances are different this is the most practical first step, other wise most people would be lost in the confusing world of real estate financing. Realtor's are educated in this aspect and can guide you through it to your advantage. You won't have to worry about payment for this service as Realtor's work on commission and get paid usually only when your transaction is completed from the Seller's proceeds.
