Even though it might still be snowing, it really is spring in Minnesota and the only thing that appears faster than our potholes is the number of "For Sale" signs that pop up in front of homes across the state.
Thanks to our prolonged foreclosure issues... both prices and interest rates are low. Homeownership is more affordable now that at any other time in recent memory, and many people are thinking about becoming homeowners. Venturing into the world of home ownership can be VERY exciting! However, it can also bring some unwelcome surprises if you're not fully prepared.
Now, the Minnesota Home Ownership Center has prepared a new online tool that helps outline the path to successful homeownership.
Give it a try here, and let us know what you think in the comments!
If you're thinking about buying your first home in Minnesota... make sure you're on the right path - the path to successful home ownership. There is tons of helpful information on the Center's website about buying your first home including information about affordable mortgages, down payment assistance and finding someone to help you through the process. For more information, visit our website, here.
If you're not sure what YOUR path to successful homeownership should be... or would like to speak to a FREE non-profit Housing Advisor (Housing Counselor) about YOUR next steps... visit the Center's website to connect with the agency closest to you that offers these services.
