 A lot of consumers are not educated enough on how they should go about buying a home.

 Of course this is a big question that can stressful or enjoyable, it just depends on the steps you take in the home buying process for Cedar Hill TX Home Loans and the surrounding areas. The key is to take the proper steps to educate yourself on your buying power, initial investment, and taking some time to think about your lifestyle choices. We will discuss each of these in this article. 

 

 Education 

 

 The proper way to go about buying a home in Cedar Hill, Texas begins with getting preapproved for your home loan. Notice we did not say get prequalified- in today’s world a prequalification is not meaningful. You should choose a mortgage lender that offers you no cost home buyer counseling and pre-approvals. During the course of this process, you will provide two years of tax returns, one month's full paystubs from recent job, and two months of all your liquid assets accounting statements that include-checking, savings, stocks, 401K' and IRA's so that you can authorize your mortgage lender to pull your credit report. It is important to note you will need to provide all pages of the bank statements, and will need to explain (source- as in prove up where money for deposits came from that went into your liquid asset accounts). Your mortgage banker needs to analyze the date to establish: 1. How much home you can afford. 2. The type of loan structure and initial investment that best fits your needs and 3. What type of house payment you feel comfortable paying for and qualify for. 

 

 Initial Investment 

 

 Numerous types of loan programs are available in the mortgage industry that range from Conventional loans with 5% down payment options to FHA loans with a 3.5% down payment as well as 100% financing on VA and USDA loans. Depending on the way your pre-approval and loan is structured, you should have your mortgage banker estimate the remaining initial investment, calculate your taxes and insurance on your new home payment, look at your closing costs and determine whether or not there are lender or seller contributions. This is just one reason why you should consult with an experienced mortgage professional who can help you decide the best loan program for you and your unique needs. 

 

 Upon getting pre-approved and after having your mortgage counseling session, you should know what the price range you are must comfortable with is. This will give you a "head start" on your Cedar Hill TX Home Loans and the surrounding area that gives you the "buying power of a cash buyer". When you submit an offer- have your mortgage banker send a preapproval letter that matches up with your offer to let the seller know that you are preapproved subject to inspections, appraisal and title work coming back clean. This will relieve you of stress because you won't be wondering if you qualify for your loan or if something may show up on your credit report that you weren't aware of that can cause a delay or for you to be turned down for your loan. 

 

 Lifestyle Choices 

 

 It is important for you to not underestimate the budget of your entire house payment and all other monthly obligations. You have numerous options. If you are a younger professional that is just getting started in your career, it is important that you buy in the upper level of the qualifying range for your home purchase knowing that your discretionary income is on the way. If you know that your income is going to be flat, you will be choosing the level of discretionary income you would want to use to reserve it for new cars, traveling, eating out,money for furnishing and updating your home, etc. To enhance your lifestyle upon purchasing your home, you need to consider what the final purchase you are comfortable with is.
