At What Age Can I Buy My First Home?

Published on September 7th, 2016

Are you interested in buying a house but worried you might be too young? You’re never too young to make a good investment in your future! And you’re never too old to invest in a home, either. Here at vLoan, our team does not discriminate. We welcome people of all ages to apply for a mortgage loan. If you think you are ready to start the digital mortgage process, start by getting a free rate quote!

When you turn 18, you are legally old enough to sign a contract. That means you can get a mortgage. But being young may also mean your credit has yet to be established. Your credit score is a very important factor when applying for a mortgage. It can be difficult to establish good credit at such a young age and in a short period of time, but it is not impossible. Does student loan debt linger over your head, as well? This can add extra barriers to entry into the home market because of high debt-to-income ratio. But with a little elbow grease and a solid plan, you can start solving these problems fast if you’re determined. Buying a home is a really great way to invest because you can build equity over a longer time period, putting you in a great financial position as you get older.

As mentioned earlier, you are also never too old to buy your first home. We treat every individual the same, no matter your age. It is never too late to invest in a property and purchase the home of your dreams!
