CLASS DESCRIPTION: Survey after survey reveals that first-time home buyers have many obstacles and much misinformation that is keeping them from achieving the American Dream of Homeownership. Many real estate agents don’t know and understand all the small down payment options available for buyers. Real estate agents also don’t understand how to answer first-time home buyers’ objections about home affordability and their ability to become a first-time homeowner.

Here are the top 5 obstacles first-time homebuyers have that keep them from buying a home per multiple consumer surveys—

  1. Record high mortgage rates
  2. The real estate market is going to crash soon
  3. They don’t have enough money saved as about 50% believe they need to put 20% down.
  4. Lack of homes within my budget
  5. I don’t have good enough credit

You will learn:
