Do you already know how much home you can afford? There is nothing more frustrating than looking for a home, finding the perfect home, then discovering it is out of your price range. Speak with a lender to learn about the different financing options available to you. When you find the right lender, get the paperwork processed so you will be ready to buy once you find your perfect home.
In order to determine the amount of home you can afford a lender will use your debt-to-income ratio to determine the percentage of your pre-tax income you spend on debt. Your debt ratio will include: monthly housing costs, car payments, credit cards, student loans, and any other installment debt. If you take on more debt before buying a home it will have an impact on the amount of the loan that the lender will finance.

The last thing you want to discover after you have bought a home is that you have purchased a "money pit".
