Deciding to Buy

Buying a home is one of the biggest financial decisions you will ever make, so the decision to purchase starts with evaluating your personal situation and asking some questions.

  • Are you ready to move?
  • Do you have a lease that is expiring?
  • Have you done research on the neighborhoods you want to live in?
  • How long do you plan to stay in your current area?
  • Are your comfortable in your job situation?
  • How much money do you have for a down payment?
  • What is your credit score good enough to get a loan?
  • Will it be a better financial decision to rent or buy? (Try this rent vs. buy calculator to find out)
  • Do you know how much home you can afford? (Try this home affordability calculator for a quick estimate)

Some of these questions are ones that you will need to answer yourself, and other questions I can help you with as your real estate agent. Knowing the answers is the first step toward deciding if now is the right time to buy.
