Apply for a Mortgage
Congratulations! You’re ready to buy your first home. All the saving and sacrifices you’ve made bring you to this exciting place in your life, and leads you to making one of the most thrilling purchases ever, your first home!
Before you go looking though, research, research, research, and that starts with understanding a few important things before you start your home search, namely, what can you afford.
You must take the time to take a full assessment of your overall financial picture to ensure that you don’t overspend and interfere with your current lifestyle goals. This includes any outstanding debts you may have, like car loans, and any credit card debt you may be carrying like Visa or even Home Depot cards. Your credit card rating score and your ability to keep up with new home ownership expenses will be under scrutiny by the lenders so it’s important to review and assess.
