First Time Homebuyers (or haven’t owned a home in 2 years)
We Take The Hassle Out Of Buying A Home!
Buying your first home seems like a daunting endeavor, but it’s really very simple.
New Mexico is a great place to buy your first home! Over the past twenty years the New Mexico Finance Authority has made it its mission to help residents get started in home ownership.
They offer a number of mortgage programs that can get you into your new home for as little as $500 down in less than 45 days. Buyers with incomes of less than $70,000/year and credit scores as low as 620 can qualify!
Here’s the nine simple steps to buying your first home:

To find out the best places to buy and who’s offering the best mortgage rates.
Collect your financial data
Last 2 Years Tax Return or W2’s, Last 2 paystubs, A current bank statement
Talk to a Professional Mortgage Banker to get prequalified.
Usually takes 30 minutes or less and can be done on-line or over the phone
Speed your home search by having your Realtor set up a Portal into the MLS based on your preferences so you can see all of the homes listed by all of the Realtors in one place
