Don’t think you can afford to own a home in the Bay Area? Think again. We’ve heard the myths, and we believe that we can prove them wrong.
MYTH: Renting is cheaper than buying.
TRUTH: Bay Area rents are sky high and rising! With after-tax benefits, homeownership can be less expensive.* Plus, a fixed-rate mortgage will help you lock in a monthly payment for up to 30 years.
MYTH: I need a 20% down payment.
TRUTH: The majority of Omni at Vineyard Crossing homebuyers make a down payment of 5% or less. Some first-time buyer programs require no down payment or as little as 3.5% down payment.† Speak to a lender about your options.
MYTH: You need perfect credit to buy a home.
TRUTH: A less-than-perfect credit history or credit challenges don’t have to stand in your way of owning a home. Lenders consider many factors beyond your credit score.
MYTH: Interest rates are high.
TRUTH: Interest rates are still near historic lows. You CAN buy a home that is built just for you, designed to reflect your personal style and still lock in a great interest rate. You CAN afford to own a brand new KB home.
