Owning a home is the American dream. When you are ready to start looking for a new home you should take few things into consideration. Determine your overall needs and determine
if being a homeowner will meet those needs. Do you mind mowing the lawn on the weekends or do you prefer a condo where it's done for you? Don't spend so much that you can barely pay your monthly bills.
Also, don't allocate all of your savings for the down payment.Here are a few tips that should help you when you are ready to purchase your new home:
1. For a typical loan, your overall monthly costs should be 28% or less of your monthly gross income (pretax income).2. The total monthly dept payments like car loans, credit card bills, etc. should not exceed 36% of your income.
3. Do not devote all of your retirement accounts for the down payment.4. When you do purchase a home, make sure to have some money in your rainy day fund especially in tough economic times like these.
