How To Budget For Your Next Home

Unfortunately, I see this happen in the Real Estate Industry and I want to make sure it does not happen to you: which is paying more for a home than you are comfortable with.

You may get approved for a payment amount that is more than you are truly comfortable paying when it comes to your monthly payments. The home buying process can become a very emotional process so with my Clients I always like to have an open conversation about this early on.

I know nobody likes the word “Budget” but it’s important to talk about your true cost of living. I recommend you make a list of all your current expenses and don’t leave anything out.

Know how much money you bring home after taxes each paycheck, then start deducting your personal expenses and this will help to see what a comfortable mortgage payment will be.
