Now that we have talked credit, it is time to consider budget! We know, we know… but we promise, you’re almost there!
When talking budget, it is important to consider the purchase price budget, as well as your cash flow budget. Being house rich and cash poor makes for a no-fun home! The home price based on your cash flow budget may be dramatically different than the budget home price you qualify for.
The benefit of a budget is two-fold. Not only does it help you to understand your purchase price range and help you to find an affordable home, but it can also help you to see any gaps in your budget or opportunities for future savings. This will be instrumental when you become responsible for mortgage payments.
To help determine your budget, we suggest checking out the My Mortgage Toolbox app on Google Play and the Apple iStore. This handy, consumer-friendly tool will help you determine your mortgage payments, affordability, income required to qualify and even the closing costs!
