Home Buying Made Easy
A lot of work is involved in finding and successfully purchasing a home. With our guidance, the process is as efficient as possible and very possibly, fun to boot! We work with clients to stay on track with their particular needs and priorities so that time is spent only on realistic expectations.
Before you can start scouting for your home or income property you need to decide how much you can comfortably spend in down-payment, monthly mortgage and closing costs — plus any improvements to the home. Some clients are comfortable stretching to the limit, while others take a more conservative approach. Typically, a buyer’s mortgage and taxes are about 1/3 of their gross income.
We can refer you to an outstanding local loan broker who will analyze your financial data and provide a “pre-approval letter” for a specific mortgage amount and purchase price. This amount is a function of your salary, other income, credit rating, employment history, down-payment, financial assets and liabilities. Once you are “pre-approved” for a specific amount, you have a very accurate assessment of your buying power and can focus your search on properties in your realistic price range.
