    How to Finance a Home (Even If You Don’t Have Excellent Credit or 20% Down)

    How to Finance a Home (Even If You Don’t Have Excellent Credit or 20% Down)

    INTERESTING FACT: I got a new construction loan to build @jewelcrestjoshua with absolutely NO money down (not even closing costs). While being able to take on a project like this does require an incredible about of privilege (good credit, having a decent proof of income, being able to spend countless hours navigating the system, cash reserves for permits, etc), I would have never realized that something like this could be done without a 5 or 6 figure downpayment. 
     
    Did you know that you DON’T need a 20% downpayment to secure a home loan? Or that the government will lend you money to buy a multifamily investment property. In today’s episode, we demystify how to secure a mortgage even if you don’t have excellent credit or 20% down. In today’s episode, we chat with Matthew Garland (@mgthemortgageguy), licensed mortgage broker and Division Manager at United Northern Mortgage Bankers on all things home loans. Be sure to tune in!
     
    In This Episode We’ll Cover:
    With the market, and the economy right now, should we even be buying a house right now How much should we be saving for a down payment FHA vs conventional loans  How to find the best financing programs & MORE

    Here's How to *Actually* Cut Back on Screen Time w/ Cal Newport

    Today we’re re-airing one of our favorite episodes with Cal Newport and we’re SO EXCITED because his book totally changed our relationship to social media. Cal is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Georgetown University. In addition to researching cutting­ edge technology, he also writes about the impact of these innovations on our culture. Newport is the author of six books, including the New York Times bestseller, Digital Minimalism, which argues that we should be much more selective about the technologies we adopt in our personal lives, and Deep Work, which argues that focus is the new I.Q. in the modern workplace.

    What digital minimalism looks like in real life  The ways in which excessive screen time can be harmful  Creating values that are not tied up in productivity or social media  Practical ways to disconnect and tap into your life values & MORE!

Great topic

Randomly came across a snack that looked interesting on the explore page. Because I am a good lover I tapped the name to see more and then learned from a video of a house that was built about your podcast. I do want to get a condo or townhome eventually so this real estate episode I just listened really gave some great info that I wasn’t aware of. Will be checking out the other episodes.
