Buying a home is expensive, we get it! If you're not ready to buy right now then here are some tips for saving for that down payment to buy a home later when you can afford it:

1. Set up automatic transfers from your checking to your savings account each month.
2. Decide now to put aside raises, bonuses, gifts, or tax refunds.
3. Skip the costly vacation, plan a staycation, and save the difference.
4. Pare down holiday and birthday gift-giving.
5. Rent out a spare room or parking space.
6. Pick up a side hustle like freelancing, pet sitting, ridesharing, or a part-time job. Remember, it’s just until you hit your down payment goal.

While 20% down allows you to avoid private mortgage insurance, you rarely will need that large a payment. A 3-10% down payment will put you in a strong position when you apply for a mortgage.

If you’re thinking you want to sell, but you have NO IDEA where you would go (especially if your home sells quickly), then please read this post! 🧐

There are a few things we can do to simplify the process of buying and selling simultaneously. 👀 Check out the latest Reel with Lindsey giving information on selling contingent to buying a home!

Having a place to go is important, but it shouldn’t keep you from forging ahead and making a move that’s right for you.

Here’s the thing: Selling your home isn’t about the details of selling. It’s about you keeping the big picture in mind long after you’ve left the closing table. And that is you in an amazing new home that fits your needs, wants, and lifestyle for the next chapter of your life.

And while you may need a plan for temporary housing (think friends with a spare room, family with a basement, a house-sitting gig, or a leaseback with your buyers), the real estate stars may align, as they often do, allowing you to sell and buy within days of one another.

The takeaway? Don’t let short-term decisions keep you from your long-term goals!
