First Time Homebuyer

Step 1:

Get Pre-Approved.

The only way to truly know how much home you can afford is to ask a lender. Getting pre-approved lets you know how much you can afford before shopping for your home.

What to Know:

  • Income: Stable income assures a lender you can make your monthly mortgage payment.
  • Debt: Add up auto payments, credit card payments, student loans, alimony, child support, and other debt.
  • Cash: Total assets, amount in checking and savings accounts, and other investments.

Step 2:

Determine Monthly Mortgage Payment Including Escrow.

Escrow is a third party account used to retain funds including the property owner’s real estate taxes and hazard insurance premiums. Escrow is only applicable in certain loan programs.

Step 3:

Understand Bills Associated with Homeownership.

Estimate that it will cost about one percent of the purchase price per year to maintain your home. For a $200,000 home, you should budget approximately $2,000 per year or approximately $170 per month for maintenance. Condominiums and co-ops will have regular maintenance fees. You will also have utilities, gas, electric, water, sewage, cable, telephone, insurance, property tax, etc.

Step 4:

Establish Future Priorities and Plan for the Unexpected.

  • What are your needs for the new home – furniture, lawn equipment, barbecue grill?
  • Do you plan on a new car in your near future?
  • Do you plan to have children?
  • How long can you survive if you lost your job?

  • Your rent payment is not tax deductible. By being a home owner the interest portion of your mortgage payment could be tax deductible. *Please consult your tax advisor.
  • Your rent almost always increases when your lease is renewed, but with a fixed-rate mortgage, the principle & interest payments never go up.
  • In addition to deducting mortgage interest, you may also be eligible to deduct costs paid at closing. As part of owning a home versus renting, you may be eligible for tax credits for improvements and other tax incentives.
