Top 3 Things To Do When Buying A New House
- Get a head start on research:
Read articles online, newspapers, magazines and informative blog posts like this one. This will give you a better idea of housing trends in your area.
- Figure out your budget:
Most lenders recommend that people look for homes that cost no more than three (3) to five (5) times their annual income if the buyer is planning to make a 20% down payment and have a moderate amount of debt.
- Get pre-qualified or pre-approved for credit:
Before you start your new home search, you need to know how much you can spend. The ideal way is to get pre-approved for a mortgage. To get pre-qualified, you simply need to provide some financial information to one of our trusted mortgage brokers; for example, your income, savings, investments and assets. Your broker will review this information and inform you of your budget of the new home you should be looking for.
