    Ep. 44 – How Much Should A First Time Home Buyer Put Down? Question Of The Week

    Time for another question of the week and this one is what lots of you have been asking. David Sidoni, the How to Buy a Home Guy, gets to the heart of the big money question – how much money does it take to get a down payment? Are you wondering if you need 20% down? Would you like to hear about 10%, 5%, 3.5% or even ZERO money down to make your first home purchase? It may go against the grain of what you have been taught about mortgages all along, but the unique market attributes of the time we are in right now actually make lower down payment options feasible, if not preferable. All the answers, tips, tricks, and hacks are here in this jam-packed episode. Be warned, there may be some math ahead, but surely nothing you can’t handle.

    Ep. 43 – Should First Time Homebuyers Focus On The Price Of The Home, Or The Monthly Payments?

    Ep. 43 – Should First Time Homebuyers Focus On The Price Of The Home, Or The Monthly Payments?

    Should first-time homebuyers focus on the price of the home or the monthly payments? Seems like a simple question, but David Sidoni, the How to Buy a Home guy, goes way beyond the simple concept of "think about the monthly, not the price." Taking the financial breakdown for first time homebuyers to a whole new level, this episode first explores how getting emotionally hung up and focused on the home price can paralyze would-be first-time homebuyers. David then gets deeper into the numbers to find the magic solution that could be just the crucial information long-time renters need to hear to help them see the value in making the change from renter to owner.

    Ep. 42 - What's Up With Biden's $15,000 Credit For First-Time Home Buyers? Question Of The Week

    Aside from bringing the pandemic response to the next level, President Joe Biden is also on a mission to make housing more affordable to the public. With that in mind, Biden's $15,000 credit for first-time home buyers is now being readied to roll out. This week's Question of the Week answered by David Sidoni, the How to Buy a Home guy, is what is the deal with this credit? Who is eligible? How does it work? When will it become a law? And what do you have to do to get your money? Furthermore, David explains why this proposed credit may conflict with the administration's democratic ideals and how it may impact the future's housing demands.

Too good to be true, except it is!!

Love this podcast and all the resources that come with it! After listening all the way through, I contacted David and he hooked me and my fiancé up with a great realtor in our area (Central Iowa)! We are so excited to be going on this journey and feel like we can actually do this after listening to these great pods!

Best Learning Toll for Me in This Process

I just closed on my first home last week, but I came across David’s podcast a year ago. Listening to him really made my pursuit to buy a reality. I already had most ducks in a row in my saving process, but I upped my game and my knowledge tremendously with his series.

David explains things so well, and so humorously, that it made it fun to listen to and to learn from each episode. I recommend this podcast to all of my friends. I think I listened to each episode at least twice, and I still reference some for knowledge even after I’ve already closed.

David even took the time to reach out to me personally to answer my question. He really does care and wants all first time buyers to succeed. Best podcast ever!! Thanks for helping make my dream a reality! This podcast is a MUST!!

An excellent resource for first time home buyers!

The thought of buying a house is so daunting and I felt completely unprepared. Listening to David’s podcast gave me the knowledge I needed to feel confident in moving forward- even in a real estate market as crazy as the one we have now. He matched me with THE BEST realtor and she helped us close on an amazing home. David is super responsive to emails and the whole process from contacting him to closing on our home was only 3 months!
