Single or not, buying a house isn’t an easy process for anyone, but with smart planning and informed decisions it can result in finding your dream home. But before making any decisions, consider these tips:
Scrutinize Your Finances
Don’t underestimate the importance of laying out and calculating required finances both for the purchase as well as the recurring cost associated with a home. Talk to a Mortgage Lender long before you plan to buy. They can help lay out a plan. In order to determine how much you can afford, first make sure you have enough saved for a sufficient down payment, typically 5-20%. Next, consider additional required finances such as closing cost. Further, properly estimating your recurring cost will help you to make a smart decision. Some costs to keep in mind include mortgage, taxes, insurance, HOA fees, utilities, as well as unexpected costs such as repairs. All of these costs are manageable, but being prepared will save you stress in the future.
Shop For Mortgages
I work with a preferred lender I really trust and am happy to share their contact information, but don’t be afraid of shopping around and doing your own research. You may find that the amount of the loan and interest rates vary significantly. Make sure you pick a lender that ensures a smooth closing. Online lenders may not be as invested in the local market or care as much about your referrals after the closing. Once you find the right one, be sure to get pre-approved so that you can determine your budget, and stick to it!
