First time home buyer Fresno, CA.

Asked by, Mon May 6, 2013

I am looking in to the benefits of purchasing a home rather than renting one. My husband and I are currently renting an apartment and considering renting a house but I had the thought of why pay rent that is going to the same or less than purchasing a house. Heres where I am stuck I have no idea where to start, we dont have the best credit, but i have found a few houses I liked where do you suggest I begin?

There are many benefits to owning a home verse renting.
1. Your money is going towards your home instead of into someone else's home.
2. You don't have to get permission to update appliances or make improvements to the home.
3. You can have a say in the size & type of pet you want.
I would honored to assist you. I may be reached by phone at 559-930-7344 or by email

Have a wonderful evening.
