With Today’s Low Interest Rates, You May Qualify For More House Than You Dreamed Possible

Prequalification for a mortgage is more important than ever before. Why? Because it is important to know how much you can afford before you begin looking at homes Around Austin TX. You should also talk with a lender as soon as possible, but which one? Ask Agent Aaron to recommend a trustworthy lender right away. Be in a stronger negotiating position with a seller when you make an offer!

Your monthly housing costs should not be more than a percentage of your monthly pre-tax income, including the mortgage payment, real estate taxes, and insurance. If you have long-term debts, such as student loans or car payments, your monthly payments, including your housing costs, should be less than 36-42% of your pre-tax monthly income. Some loans, such as VA and FHA loans, are more flexible with these basic guidelines.

Depending on which type of mortgage you select, you can consider houses in various price ranges. An adjustable-rate mortgage will usually enable you to qualify for a higher loan amount. Your Realtor can help you make the basic calculations. And remember, buying at the top end of your price range gives you more time to outgrow your home, and can save you money in the long run.
