Step 1: Analysis
All of your decisions moving forward will be made within the limits of your buying power. Buying a home is NOT the process of discovery, it is the process of elimination.
Review the numbers below. Oftentimes what you're paying on a monthly basis is more important than the overall purchase price.
How to think about Buying Power
For Every $100K you borrow in a mortgage at _____% is Equal to $ ________ per month.
For Every $10K you borrow in a mortgage at _____% is Equal to $ ________ per month.
For Every $1K you borrow in a mortgage at _____% is Equal to $ ______ per month.
In other words, $ _________ per month will increase your buying power by $ ____________.
Do you have a monthly bill that could be paid off to increase you home purchase power?
Choosing a community that is right for you is a very personal choice. Proximity to work, houses of worship, to schools and lifestyle are just a small fraction of the reasons why you may choose one community over another.
You're buying power may limit where you can purchase a home and you may have to choose between the right house and right community.
