Am I Ready To Commit?

Buying a house is a major commitment. Before you begin shopping for properties or comparing mortgage options, you need to make sure you’re ready to be a homeowner. Let’s take a look at some of the factors your lender will consider when they look at your loan application.


Preparing To Buy

Once you decide you’re ready to buy a home, it’s time to set a budget. A good place to begin is by calculating your Debt To Income (DTI) ratio. Take a look at your current debts and income and consider how much money you can reasonably afford to spend each month on a mortgage.


Choosing An Agent

Your agent will look out for your best interests by finding homes that meet your criteria, get your showings, help you write offers, and negotiate on your behalf.


Right Time To Buy

After some serious thinking, you’ve come to the decision that it’s time to kiss your landlord goodbye and buy your first home. Congratulations, you’re one step closer to joining the homeowner’s club! High five, self!
