How to know if you’re ready

Before you start searching for your new home or comparing mortgage rates, start evaluating your current situation and how it could change in the near future. Get started by asking yourself some basic questions:
  • Do you have a stable income?
  • Do you plan on starting a family, or experience any other major life changes that impact your financial stability?
Our financial experts can help you determine if you’re ready and what you can afford.

How to evaluate your financial situation before buying a house

Start by reviewing your bank accounts and billing statements to accurately gauge how much money you’re making and spending each month. If you’re going to buy a house with someone else (like a spouse), review your finances together and then ask yourselves some questions:

  • Do you have a stable job or other income?
  • After a mortgage payment, will you still be able to save money each month?
  • Will you still be able to manage other debts like student loans and car payments?
  • Do you keep your credit debt low to help qualify for a better mortgage?
  • Do you have enough money saved for a down payment and closing costs?

Determining your down payment

The amount of your monthly mortgage payment and how it fits in your budget is key to determining how much house you can afford.

Your down payment is cash you’ll pay for the home at closing. Down payment requirements can be as little as zero down, depending upon several key factors. The more money you put down, the lower your monthly payment and interest rate will be.

Down payment help is available. Special restrictions apply. If you need help determining your down payment, check out the resource links below.

Notes & Fees

All loans subject to approval. Assuming 20% down, purchase for a $296,000 loan with a 30 year fixed term at 6.375% APR, your monthly payment on a single-family home would be $1,847. Payment does not include taxes, insurance, or other charges. Actual monthly payment will be higher.
