WHEN BUYING A HOME THERE ARE TWO REALLY
KEY FINANCIAL ISSUES THAT YOU HAVE TO ADDRESS:
How much money do you have to work within making the home
purchase (down payment and closing costs)?
How much will it cost to live in it (the monthly payment)?
Those are the obvious ones, but then there are a host of others
that most people don't consider. Most people don't have a
plan or strategy to guide them through the process of making
this purchase that will probably be one of the largest they
will ever make.
To maximize the use of your dollars, how you finance the purchase
is of paramount importance. For example, most buyers don't
plan on living in the same home for 30 years. Yet, so many
people opt for a 30 year fixed rate loan -- one of the higher
interest rate loans you can get. The more you know about this
process, the better decision you will make for yourself on
the purchase of a home. The knowledge is priceless.
It is of utmost importance to talk with your local financial
institution, or financial planner, in choosing the plan best
