Still Saving Your Tax Refund Or Stimulus Checks? Here's How To Use Them!

If you’ve started researching the home buying process, or you’ve already purchased a home in the past, you probably know one of the first things you need to consider is the size of the downpayment you are going to need to cover on the home you discover. While that down payment can vary depending on what type of financing you qualify for, it is never a bad idea to start saving as much possible, as soon as possible.

If you qualified for any of the stimulus payments and have been keeping that money, or tax refund money, tucked away into savings - this would be the perfect opportunity to use that cash. With the average refund for this year around $3000, there is a good chance your tax refund, potentially paired with a stimulus, can put a major dent in your down payment.

With a competitive market that doesn’t seem to be cooling off anytime soon, now is the time to buy. Ensuring you have the proper funds to cover that downpayment once you find ‘the one’ can save you heartache in the future. Give me a call today and we can get you set up with a lender so you can get pre-approved and find out just how much you need to have saved!
