PREPARING TO BUY
Buying a home is a big decision and the best way to start is to determine if you can afford to purchase and how much you can afford. You can do this by getting pre-approved by a mortgage lender. A few key questions that can help determine if you are ready for buying a home…
- Should I rent or buy?
- Am I financially stable?
- Do I have financial management kills and discipline to handle this large of a purchase?
- Am I ready and able to take responsibility for all costs that come with being a homeowner?
- Can I devote the time to regular home maintenance?
