Buy a First Home
Congratulations on your decision to purchase your first house! You're in for an exciting search for your dream starter home. But buying a home is certainly a big financial commitment. Between down payments, home inspections, and closing costs, the total cost can add up quickly.
Turn to your friends at Elements. We'd love to help walk you through your first time home buying journey — from investigating and preapproving you for a home loan to budgeting for your new mortgage payment and looking into homeowner's insurance for your new abode, we're here to support you. You'll also want to consider moving costs, utility fees, lawn care, and homeowners association dues. If you've got questions, we've got answers. Ask away.
Turn to the financial wellness experts at Elements to discuss funding your life goals. We're eager to help you fund your starter home with our program focused on first-time buyers and support your day to day needs as a homeowner.
"Living lean" or "simple living" may conjure up thoughts of having to ditch your cell phone, cable TV and iPad, but our idea is not to live a life of deprivation, but a life full of meaningful things.
This guide will help you simplify your life, as you venture into homeownership, without feeling like you're in the stone age.
