Lenders certainly first look at your debt and compare that to your income.
Your debt to income ratio will impact how much house you can afford. You want to find the best mortgage company that will assist you in calculating a comfortable home buying budget. Knowing the difference between home loan terms such as pre-qualified, pre-approved and loan commitment will give you a quick insight into how smoothly your home buying contact will be initiated. Will a bi-weekly mortgage payment plan assist you in paying off your home’s mortgage more quickly? Paying off your home quickly may help you in the long run but is it the best scenario for you during your first home purchase. These are all considerations that should be discussed with a professional mortgage company.
