How can I know whether I’m actually ready to buy a home?
The decision to buy a home, especially for the first time, is a personal one. But if you’re worried about whether you’re financially prepared, you’ll want to talk with a mortgage lender about pre-approval for a loan. Doing so can let you know whether you’re set up financially to buy a home—and how much home you can comfortably afford.
