If you have decided to buy your first home in San Jose

congratulations on a wonderful choice

San Jose is a growing, thriving city with plenty of opportunity in the heart of Silicon Valley. It’s a fun and exciting location to live and work, and a great place to raise a family. It can be a tough one too though from a financial point of view. If you have started researching San Jose mortgage rates, you have probably noticed something. For a first-time home buyer, San Jose is not the most affordable choice!

That’s why we are here to help! There’s no reason for you to get discouraged. With our network of top lenders and the special deals and discounts they offer our clients, we are able to help you find the most affordable San Jose first time home buyer loans. A lot of these are exclusive deals you simply are not going to find anywhere else.

Here’s what we can do for you to help you save money and move into your dream home fast:?

  • Acquaint you with the entire home-buying process. As a first-time home buyer in San Jose, you are bound to have a lot of questions. We are here to answer them and make sure you understand all the fine print before you sign off on a mortgage.
  • Get you acquainted with San Jose’s special homebuyer programs. The city of San Jose has a few special programs offering down payment assistance. Depending on where you hope to live, what your income level is, and several other factors, this may be a great fit for you.
  • See if you qualify for a San Jose FHA loan. FHA loans are aimed at several groups, and first time home buyers are one of the main target groups. With an FHA loan, you may qualify for a down payment which is as low as 3.5% of the total price of your home! FHA loans also include low closing costs, and they are easier to qualify than traditional loans. Your credit score just needs to be above 500, and you will be good to go. These loans often have friendlier terms as well, which can make them a better choice now and over the long run.

Let Us Help You Buy Your First Home

We know how confusing and frustrating it can be shopping for your first home. Mortgages are complicated, and finding one with friendly terms and an affordable rate can be a challenge anywhere, but it can be especially difficult in San Jose.

We want to make it easy for you.

Every day, we help first time buyers to move into the affordable homes of their dreams. If you are ready to move into your dream home, or if you just want to ask us some questions before you get started, call us at (408) 599-3628, or email us at shawn@bma-loans.com.

Shawn has help my family twice, both times with a refinance with cash out. Shawn is patient, helpful, and very insightful about what is actually possible. The team he works with during the loan process are some of the most helpful people in the business. The refinancing process with C2 Financial was very smooth, and throughout the process you are informed of the next steps and the status of your loan. Shawn is also very willing to give you phone call to ease your concerns. I know in the future where to turn to when in need of a mortgage broker. Thanks again Shawn.

Shawn helped us in getting pre-approval as well as under-written for our home loan application. Being first time home buyers, it was amazing home he explained different terms and pieces in lending process. He has great deal of knowledge and is good in providing charts / detailed comparisons of different scenarios (like different downpayment amounts, total purchase price etc).Plus: Online application process, super easy to upload documents etc. Would definitely recommend him and his team..He should be able to help with loans for properties under litigations as well !!

My husband and I used Shawn to purchase our first home, and he made the process run smoothly from start to finish. He asked great questions to get a clear picture of what we were looking for, and he gave us a great menu of options to fit our needs and budget. He recommended that we set up a TBD loan, which made our offer stronger, and the escrow process shorter. In hindsight, I think having the TBD loan documentation in hand when we put in our bid was one of the reasons our offer was accepted. Shawn was incredibly professional and communicated well with our real estate agent and every other person involved with the loan underwriting process. He gave us all thorough information and provided us the best loan options available....and we closed in 3 weeks, in the most competitive market in the country! Couldn’t have done this without Shawn.

Sean,I just wanted to let you know that it was a pleasure working with you. It was great to receive your updates so that everyone knew where we were in the process. The seller's agent was able to keep her client informed, which made us all look good.You and your team performed on time, except for the slight delay by the seller at the end. I never had to bug you about anything. These are all signs of a good mortgage broker who does his job well.

Shawn is a great mortgage lender who will be there for you till the home closing is done. He is very responsive, transparent, providing great rates. For a first time buyer like me, it was really important that I had somebody to help me out with all the doubts regarding loan escrow etc. and Shawn would always reply promptly and patiently. He made the whole home buying process a breeze. I would recommend Shawn for any mortgage brokering needs.

Communication communication communication has been top notch with Shawn. Through out the process Shawn was always quick to respond to any inquires or questions needed. Even when he was in another appointment he promptly let me know that he would get back right away. He actually did everything faster than what he promised. One of the best parts about his was his status updates. He did a very good job on keeping the buyers, sellers, selling agent, and listing agent informed to where everything was in the process. Transparency is key, and he did the best job at it. Shawn is one of the best and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and his services.
