Finances and Credit
Home buyers who have done their homework and taken a few important steps will be in a much better position to make a successful offer on a home and see it through to closing. Unless you are buying with cash, you will need to qualify for a loan. We are happy to get you connected with an excellent and very experienced lender who can help you figure out the following:
- Your debt-to-income ratio
- Your credit score
- Saving for a down payment, mortgage insurance & closing costs
- Getting pre-qualified
Your Home Wish List
Making your wish list is the fun part of home shopping. You will want to prioritize your “must-haves” such as location or how many bedrooms or bathrooms. Your “wants” are those items that you’d like to have but would be willing to sacrifice if you found a good home at the right price. Complete the Buyer’s Worksheet to help you with this process.
