Yes you can, just click the submit an offer button and submit the properties information. One of our licensed agents will reach out to you immediately to collect more private information needed to present the landlord (credit report, income verification, and background check)
Is it better to rent or buy?
At iBuySfl we believe it is better in most circumstances to buy. We have reason to believe, with interest rates being at all time lows and many programs to allow buyers to purchase with very little money, now is the time to buy real estate. Benefits of homeownership include: building equity, tax deductions, a fixed mortgage (rents increase every year), owning an asset to get financing against, etc. When you rent you’re just paying you’re landlords mortgage. Many mortgages are actually at lower monthly payments than rent.
Do I NEED 20% down to buy a home?
No, our wide arrangement of lenders we recommend using, can secure your financing with as little as 0% down. The lenders we work with are fit to satisfy any type of buyer in any real estate transaction.
