Jennifer, I would say that if you are considering purchasing a home I would speak with a lender and Realtor now. The reason is that there are loan programs available where you can purchase for no money down. There are also grant money programs where you can purchase for only 1% down. So understanding this now would more than likely help you in your decision making process. We'd love to help you when the times comes for you to start looking at properties. Feel free to call us at (614) 300-2900 or visit our website at www.RPSofOhio.com.
Best of luck!
