Critical Questions to Ponder Before Taking the Leap into Homeownership:

Here are five key questions to consider before buying a house:

Financial Readiness:

Long-Term Goals:

  • How does homeownership align with my long-term personal and financial goals?

Homeownership Responsibilities:

  • How does homeownership align with my long-term personal and financial goals?

Market Conditions:

  • What are the current real estate market conditions in the area I’m interested in?

Future Plans:

Answering these questions will provide clarity on your readiness and guide your decision-making process in buying a house.

Mortgage Loan Officer

The right lender can make a huge difference in the real estate buying process. The “right” lender could be your bank or a mortgage broker. The important thing is that you have an open and communicative relationship. Just as a real estate agent controls the escrow process, the mortgage broker is responsible for shepherding the loan to funding.


Escrow Officer

Escrow is a neutral third party to the transaction. The escrow officer is your agent in that office. Escrow takes the terms agreed to by the parties and enacts them. They run the file and arrange funding and change of title on the day of closing.
