The Biggest Hurdle Buyers Must Overcome in Today’s Market


Hey Long Island home buyers. The housing market is heating up!

If you’re looking to buy your first home or upgrading to a second home, today’s market is very different than the market from 5 years ago. The biggest hurdle….financing! Lenders expect a lot more today! Having the following items taken care of will make it that much easier to close on the home you really want.

If you are serious about buying a home, you need a sizable down payment, a good credit score, low debt and a sold track record of employment to qualify for loan.

  • Build up your cash for a down payment plus other expenses that come with owning a home.
  • Check your credit report for accuracy.
  • Pay all your bills on time.
  • Zero out credit card debt.
  • Don’t take on any new debts.
