    Overcoming Obstacles on the Path to Homeownership 

    The issue

    The Frustration of an Inaccessible Downpayment

    • Charles, a motivated first-time homebuyer, had been diligently saving for his dream home.
    • Despite his efforts, his downpayment fell short of the $80,000 needed to secure his ideal property in a restricted market
    • Thankfully, his parents Martin & Elaine generously gifted him $60,000 to bridge the gap and fulfill his homeownership aspirations.
    • However, when Charles approached another lender, his income alone did not meet the strict qualification criteria for the mortgage he desired.

    The solution

    A Partnership that Transformed Charles’ Journey

    Enter nesto. Here’s how we helped:

    • We immediately offered Charles a low-rate guarantee, ensuring he could afford the mortgage terms right from the start.
    • More than 40% of first-time homebuyers said they leaned on their families to help them, with 19% saying they still receive help with mortgage payments*.
    • Leveraging the income of Charles’ working mother as a co-signer, nesto successfully qualified Charles for the mortgage he had longed for.
      • If the parent contributes >50% income and/or downpayment – lender wants them as a co-signer (on title). 
      • If <50%, they are a guarantor for their credit worthiness. If the parent contributes >50% income and/or  downpayment – lender wants them as a co-signer (on title). 
    • The process was not only efficient but also simplified, eliminating the stress and confusion often associated with traditional lenders.
