Saving For A Down Payment

Saving For A Down Payment

Image title

    Years ago the banks made it mandatory to put 20% down before they would loan you a mortgage. With recent changes, you are now able to get a loan with zero money down. Although that is a great feature, it is still smart to try and put close to 20% down to avoid paying ample amounts on interest rates.

    Knowing how much money you should be putting down can be hard. Do not let the 20% rule keep you from purchasing your first home! Putting your money in a safe and secure saving account that can help you grow your money faster is a great way to have a larger down payment. Most savings accounts earn less than 1% per year. Speak to a bank about putting your money in an account that will help your money grow. 

Here is a great list of ways I believe in saving money:

- Create a monthly budget

- Create a Savings Account 

- Save money in big chunks AND in little chunks. Both will go a long way!
