So your kids are of age and are starting to discuss buying their first home.  Problem is they don’t know how/where to come up with the 20% required.  There are a lot of different options and 20% is not the golden number.  First step should be to consult with your lender to understand what programs they have and what downpayment amounts are required.  We have relationships with some of the best lenders in the business and are happy to make the referral.

We’d be delighted to help your child find their first home as well. Just reach out to us – Susan Schall is at or Donna Garrison is at
