If you are a first time home buyer, take time to visit our Resources section for information to help you start the home buying process. Be sure to check out our calculators which will help guide you through some important calculations.
Am I Financially Prepared?Before you consider buying a home you must be financially ready. Some things you should consider:
- Have you saved for a down payment – at least 5% of the purchase price of the home?
- Is your credit record healthy?
- Can you afford the property taxes?
- Can you make the monthly mortgage payments?
- Do you have money set aside for home emergencies such as a new furnace or hot water heater?
Does it Make Sense to Buy?
- How settled am I?
- Is a job transfer likely?
- Would I like a change of scenery sometime in the near future?
If you’re not going to be in the same location for the next 3 to 7 years, you may not want to buy a house. After only a few years, you won’t make enough on the house sale to at least break even.
How Much “Home” Can I Afford?
