Owning a home is no different than any other major commitment. It is important to be mentally, emotionally and financially ready for it.  BEFORE YOU EVEN BEGIN TO LOOK AT HOMES, take a good look at your situation and crunch the numbers to make sure this is the right time for you to move forward.

Just because we are in a buyer’s market and interest rates are at historically low points does not mean that now is the right time for YOU to buy.

The steps in this Buyer’s Toolkit are essential in determining if now is the time for you and, if so, just how much home you should be looking to purchase.
