Make Your Dream Of Being A Texas Homeowner A Reality

While 2020 has been a challenging year, there are still plenty of reasons to celebrate Homeownership Month this June. If your goal is to buy your first home in Texas this year, at Gibraltar Group Mortgage, we’re still offering a wide variety of home loan programs to finance home purchases, but we’ve made the whole process safer and we are working overtime to get you into your home sooner.

Shelter in your own place

If your experience with “sheltering in place” in a make-do rental home has convinced you to fast-track your buying plans, you’re not alone1. Builders and real estate agents across the nation have been reporting a rise in interested buyers during the last months. For example, this number rose by 10% during one week in April, even with safety quarantines and lockdowns in place.

In addition to safer social distancing, homeownership can provide a dedicated home office, a private open space for relaxing outdoors, your own laundry room, and a kitchen equipped with more than rental-quality appliances.

Check out your financing options

No matter what type of property you’ve set your sights on, we can help you research your financing options and choose the best one. We know that many first-time homebuyers struggle to save for a  down payment, so we offer low down payment home loans, and if you’re a military veteran, a reservist, or still in active duty, you may qualify for a VA loan with no down payment requirement2

If you’re concerned that your household income may be too low to qualify for a loan, or if you don’t have the funds for a down payment, you may qualify for state, county, or city down payment assistance programs3. Your Gibraltar Group Mortgage loan originator can identify these programs and review the eligibility requirements with you.

While many of these programs have no employment restrictions, some are designed to assist teachers, first responders, and others who vital services purchase a home in their community. If you work in one of these professions, you deserve the special incentives these programs offer.

If you’re concerned about social distancing while shopping for mortgage financing, we have you covered there, too. Gibraltar Group Mortgage offers several options that make it easy for you to apply for a loan without leaving home.

For example, you can apply online with your computer, tablet, or mobile phone with our mobile app. You’ll appreciate how we leave out the mortgage-speak acronyms, and explain everything in everyday language.
