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!
- 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.
- 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!
