4 financial steps for a new home

Buying a home is a life-changing event for you and your family. It is crucial that you learn about the alternatives and make sure you have covered all the options before making a financial commitment.

4 financial steps for a new home

Once you have completed the first steps, you will only need to call BHHS Spain, to advise you and find the ideal home beyond your needs. Buying a home is a life-changing event for you and your family. It's crucial that you educate yourself on the alternatives and make sure you've covered all the options before making a financial commitment. Follow these four steps to help you and your family get your finances in order...and on the road to a new home.

Step 1: Assess your financial situation

Before you start looking for a new home, you should make sure your income is stable and can handle the financial obligation of a mortgage. And it's a good idea to make sure you have an emergency fund to help cover unexpected expenses.

Step 2: Check your scoring

Having a good credit score can help considerably when negotiating a better interest rate on your mortgage loan. To get a clear picture of your credit health, get a copy of your Credit Report from your bank. If there are any inaccuracies, contact the bank to make a correction, as it could help improve your overall score.

Step 3: Calculate your price range

Analyze the cost of your new home and how much you can afford. This means doing some research and taking into account all possible housing-related expenses, such as mortgage payments, homeowner's insurance, property taxes, utilities, homeowner's association dues, maintenance costs, etc.

Paso 4: Ahorra para el pago inicial

Conventional loans have a minimum down payment ranging from 5% to 20%; once you have your down payment goal, designate a monthly amount to put toward it in a separate savings account. Remember, the more you can put down when you buy, the lower your monthly payment will be and the less interest you will pay overall.
