Don't Overspend when Buying a Home!

Buying a new home is one of the most exciting things we do, it's also one of the biggest investments most people will make in their lifetime.

 

A couple of things to remember when you start the process:  

ALWAYS USE A REALTOR! 

  1. Don't Overbuy: Although you may qualify for more money than you thought, only borrow what you are comfortable with. Keep in mind, you will always have something unexpected to happen as a homeowner. Some mortgage companies may try to talk you into the higher mortgage amount but always look at the total picture: Taxes, HOA Dues, PMI, etc. 
  2. You will want to buy new things for your home: such as furniture, accessories, enhance the landscaping, maybe put in a new deck or patio, fresh paint, etc. If you overextend yourself on your mortgage just because you qualify for more, you may not have extra money to do these things!

Great info.  That's why they say... House Rich, Cash Poor. Don't be one of ...those... people.

It's easy to over spend in this market so it's more important than ever to have a pro by your side
