Home Buyer's FAQs

Buying a home is a big commitment and one of the biggest financial investments you’ll make throughout your life. There are many things to consider before deciding to buy a house. Do you have a steady job? Have you been employed for the past two to three years? Do you have a reliable income? Do you pay your bills on time? Do you have any long-term debt? Can you afford a mortgage, taxes, insurance, utilities, and other bills? All of these are questions to consider before purchasing a home.
The decision to rent or buy a home comes down to a few questions. Do you have a steady job? Do you have reliable income? Do you have outstanding debt? Can you afford a mortgage, as well as taxes, insurance, utilities, and additional bills? These questions should determine if you’re ready to buy a house or instead rent until you’re financially stable to buy.
Yes, your credit score will impact your ability to buy, as well as the interest rate of your mortgage if you get approved. Your credit score is a glimpse into your financial standing. Mortgage lenders will use your score to determine if you’re eligible for a loan as well as the interest rate. Higher credit scores result in a better chance of receiving a loan with a lower interest rate. Buyers with low credit scores may have to wait longer to obtain approval and could have higher interest rates. It’s best to work on raising your score before starting the home buying process.
Down payments will differ depending on your financial situation and the cost of the home you want to buy. Saving for a down payment can be challenging, especially for first-time home buyers. The average down payment is between 3% and 20% of the home’s price but it can also vary according to lender requirements, as well as the type and length of the loan. Before you commit to buying a home, prepare financially by saving for a down payment.
This is a common question when it comes to home buying. Pre-qualification gives potential home buyers an insight into how much they can borrow for a mortgage. This information is not guaranteed but can help home buyers look at houses around that budget. Pre-approval involves pulling your credit report to determine if you qualify for a mortgage. This helps real estate agents understand what you can and cannot afford. Home sellers also feel more at ease with someone who is pre-approved for a mortgage because it ensures that they won’t back out of their purchase and can afford the home.
Receiving a mortgage can be a complicated process. It’s important to work with a reputable mortgage lender who will walk you through every step of the home buying process.
