Why buying a home in Colorado is a good idea.

 

Should I buy a home or rent a home?

The decision is yours, but the best choice is to buy a home and use your BAH allowance to pay your mortgage.  Colorado Springs has many great neighborhoods to choose from that are within minutes from a military base.  Contact one of your Military Home Specialists who can help you find the best neighborhood in a price range that fits your budget.

What are the Benefits of VA Loans?

  • No down  payment is required when using a VA loan.  You can purchase a home up to $721,050 without putting any money down.  You can buy a property for more as long as you put down 25% of the difference.
  • No mortgage insurance.  With many loans you would need to pay mortgage insurance (PMI) on top of your monthly mortgage payment. VA Loans do not have PMI insurance.
  • No early loan repayment penalties. 

How Do I Create an Investment Portfolio?

Real estate is an avenue to long-term retirement planning for service members.

Investing in real estate at each duty station, and renting the property when it’s time to move to the next assignment.

At retirement, these service members have a portfolio of properties that generate income to supplement military retirement pay, making retirement much easier down the road.
