Need some tips for financing that mortgage this holiday? Look no further! I'm here to help you take on a very important life decision with ease. Here are six easy tips on how to manage your mortgage, stress-free.

How to Take On a Mortgage



Strengthen Your Credit 

  • Use on 20% of available credit when thinking of purchasing a house
  • Don't get new credit before applying for mortgage-- lenders want to know you can handle your credit and not fall into debt
  • Pay off any balance-- a clean slate is key!


Save

  • Save! Save! Save! Aim to save 6 months of mortgage after down payment is made
  • The more you can spend monthly on the house, including down payments, mortgages, and inspections, the less you will have to spend overall


Pre-Approval by a Mortgage Lender

  • A Pre-Approval letter shows you what range the bank is willing to lend you
  • It also signals to the home owners that you are serious about potentially purchasing the house and have been authorized to do so
15 vs 30 year mortgage

  • A 30 year mortgage is a lower monthly rate but costs more overtime
  • A 15 year mortgage is a higher monthly rate but costs less overtime
  • Think about what you can afford monthly and compare it to the possible savings over the years


Hire the Right Realtor

  • Your realtor will be with you every step of the way, so make sure all of you are on the same page
  •  Look in the right neighborhood for you-- be realistic, and think towards the future
