It was a popular place for families to visit from the start, and all of those visitors have helped the zoo grow into what it has become today.

Down Payment Amounts - Buy a House - Heritage Realty International Inc.

Buying a home is a significant investment. However, before investing in a house, you must save up a down payment to qualify for a loan. Our real estate agents understand that this can be a daunting prospect, and yet it's not insurmountable. With careful planning, a little research, and strategic use of your money, you can reach your down-payment goal and step into the home of your dreams. 

• The 20% Myth
You've likely heard that you need to save 20% of the home's purchase price as a down payment. That's not accurate. You can purchase a home with as little as 0%-5% down for most loans. However, until you've paid down 20% of the loan, you must pay for mortgage insurance. For this reason, most homeowners strive to pay off at least 20% of the loan as quickly as possible.

If you're looking for the home where you want to spend your senior years, or if you're looking to sell your home so you can make your next move, you may find the home you want among Morgantown homes for sale. But as you shop, keep in mind some of these tips from our experienced real estate staff involving downsizing—and rightsizing.

Bidding War Blunders - Heritage Realty International Inc.

When you're looking at Morgantown homes for sale, it's easy to find one you fall in love with!

Many places throughout the United States are in the midst of a "seller's market." Low housing supply combined with relatively low interest rates means more qualified buyers competing for fewer homes. When you bid, you may find yourself against two or more would-be buyers.

Our real estate agents want to ensure you're prepared!
