Buying a home is investing in real estate; it needs to be done with care and good advice.

Some important questions to consider:


    •How much can you afford? There are several factors to take into consideration, such as your income, down payment, debt, etc. Generally you can afford a home equal in value to between 3 and 5 times your gross annual income.


    •Where do you want to live? Consider what’s important to you: schools, outdoor activities, shopping, etc. Then narrow down your search to three or four areas.


    •What features in a home are a necessity, desirable or simply would be nice to have? Do you and your partner agree on these priorities? Can you live with “less than perfect”?


    •Do you have enough money saved for a down payment? Ideally, you should have 20 percent of the purchase price saved as a down payment. There are a few programs that allow you to buy a house with less than 20%.


    •Do you have a copy of your credit report; is it accurate? Correct any errors immediately.


    •Are you qualified for a loan and if so, for how much? Calculate your mortgage here.


    •Are you pre-approved?  If not, organize all the documentation a lender will need, such as W-2 forms, copies of at least one pay stub, account numbers, and copies of two to four months of bank or credit union statements.
