Before You Purchase a Home Ask Yourself These Questions

Home Owner
Buying a home is an exciting and stressful time. How do you know you are ready? Will the bank approve the loan? How do you hire a qualified home inspector? There are so many things to consider when buying a home. Some important things to consider are:

  • Don’t buy if you can’t stay put

  • Aim for a home you can afford

  • Get professional help

  • Choose carefully between points and rate

  • Do your homework before bidding

For a first time homebuyer, there are some basic questions to ask: how to choose a home, how to negotiate, how to make an offer, how do you make the transition between renting and buying, to name a few.

Savings for a Home

When moving forward with buying a home, it is recommended to put a down payment of 20% on your home, although it is possible to get a loan with less down. Regardless to how much you can afford to put down, it is important to know how much house you can afford.
