What are the benefits of buying a home?
Owning a home is a great way to build equity. Being a homeowner also has great social and emotional benefits. For instance, you’re in control of your living situation, and you can use your home as a way to improve and beautify your community.
How much “house” is in my price range?
In general, you should prepare to spend about 25% of your gross income on your mortgage. This celebrity real estate tip applies to people with plenty of disposable income, as well as those who don’t make as much as Hollywood’s elite. Most mortgage lenders are at ease with this estimation. Of course, your credit and current financial obligations will also determine the type of mortgage you’re approved for.
Should I get a buyer’s agent?
It’s a good idea to have a buyer’s agent when you’re in the market for a new home. The agent has your best interest at heart and is familiar with the neighborhoods you’re interested in. A buyer’s agent can also help you find homes in the right price range and help you fill out paperwork necessary to make you an official homeowner.
