“We’re Planning on Buying Next Year”

“We’re Planning on Buying Next Year”

 

 

So many time I speak to prospective home buyers that say they are planning to purchase a home sometime in the future for many reasons. One of the reason, we don’t think we can qualify, so we need some coaching as to what we need to get ready.

 

After getting their history and running a credit report, it was clear that the wife had very strong credit, but the husband was not as strong, credit or income wise. After going over some math, the wife could purchase a home on her own.

 

The two of them were getting killed on taxes, based on their joint income, so buying a home sooner rather than later was definitely in their best interest and since they file jointly, it wouldn’t matter if the mortgage was done in both names.

 

They left my office with a pre-qualification in hand and ready to buy a home now, rather than later. Before you decide on next year, check it out, you may be able to buy NOW!
