Planning For Life After Deployment
There’s No Place Like Home
There’s no greater honor than serving your country. We owe everything to our service men and women in uniform who fight to preserve the freedoms we hold so dear each and every day.
While the time you’re sacrificing away from family and friends likely has you pretty homesick, using your downtime to think about the future is both a great way to occupy yourself and make plans for the future back home.
Whether you’re planning to start a family and have your needs fairly mapped out or have no idea where to start, here are a few things to think about when it comes to planning for the future.
Are you looking to settle down with room to grow? Are you flying solo for now and looking for something a little more manageable? Ask yourself these basic questions to help set up parameters. Using features like Nestiny’s Journey Homework and Ready Report, you’ll be able to gauge your readiness to purchase a home–on your own time and at your own pace–and come home with an arsenal of tools to assist you in making the right decisions for you and your family.
Once you’ve got a good idea of what you’re looking to buy, use Nestiny’s True Affordability Tool which can help you determine whether your goals are in reach–and what it will take to achieve them and get into the home you’ve always wanted.
If affordability is a hurdle between you and your dreams of ownership, consider applying for a VA Loan. Under the program, the federal government will guarantee a portion of a private bank loan, thereby enabling you to receive more favorable terms from banks or other lenders.
If you’re dreaming of more than just coming home, but building a life in a new home, get started today with Nestiny! It’s easy and free, and you’ll go a long way towards planning your life back home before you even set foot back on U.S. soil.
