Tax Season Ending Soon

It’s almost time for the last tax returns to be sent out and the final time to file if you haven’t already. Every year when this time rolls around people update their cars or go on family vacations, but did you ever think about using your tax return to buy your first home? It’s definitely doable and probably the wisest way to use your return – here’s how.

Low Down Payments


With as little as 3% down the majority of your down payment could be your tax return which leaves you only a little to save throughout the year with the goal in mind of buying your first home around this time of the year. We believe this is an attainable goal for many of our clients and their friends. We know the idea of a down payment seems impossible and really steep when you think about in terms of income and other things needed throughout the year. However, if you plan to put your whole tax return towards it, that limits a lot of the stress and savings throughout the year.

We work with some awesome mortgage guys that we know could steer you in the right direction of getting approved. Derek Beisner was a great resource for us when looking for current down payment rates in California, and he would be a great resource for you as well. We would love to sit down with you and help you plan out a realistic goal for yourself based on your tax return and the amount your wanting to spend on a home. Contact Angie at 949-338-7408 if this sounds like something you could do!
