Scrounging Up A Down Payment For Your Huntsville Real Estate

By: Huntsville Real Estate Expert Mike Manosky On June 26, 2009

You’ve decided to take the plunge and buy a home for your family.  With the banking industry in the shape it is, unless you have stellar credit, you’ll need a more sizeable down payment than ever before.  So, how do you get the down payment for the Huntsville real estate you’ve always dreamed of?

Get Scrounging

Scour your attic, basement and storage units. Look in every nook and cranny to find items that are in decent shape, but no longer used, and have a garage sale.  Sure it’s usually pennies on the dollar of what your stuff is worth.  But if you’re not using it, someone else can, and you get the cash in hand. If you find items that are more valuable, sell them on eBay.  Every little bit helps.

Rich Relatives?

Hey, if you have’em use’em. This is no time to feel shy about asking for a gift. Purchasing Huntsville real estate is a wise investment.  Many relatives who might otherwise be unwilling to give cash for frivolous items are happy to help loved ones buy a home.

Sell Something Big

Having precious jewelry or antiques is a great asset.  Consider selling items you’ve been holding onto as investments, in order to get the home of your dreams.

There are many ways to come up with the down payment and financing you need to buy Huntsville real estate.  I can help.  Give me a call to day at 800-803-0053 or email me at
