How to Save for a Down Payment on a Home
How to Save for a Down Payment on a Home9/26/2018

Step #1: Determine how much house you can afford

Speak to a mortgage broker to determine what you can afford in a home.

Step #2: Calculate your down payment

While you can put down anywhere to upward of 3.5% of a home’s selling price, most brokers consider 20% to be the magic number.

Step #3: Create a savings plan

Once you’ve got the amount you’ll need to save, set up a savings plan that will help you reach this goal. Make sure the numbers are doable and that you’ll be able to meet your monthly savings goal easily.

Step #4: Automate your savings

To make the process simpler, set up an automatic monthly transfer to a specialized savings account. If your goal is long-term, you may want to consider opening a certificate or similar account instead of a conventional savings account.
