Having a budget is good, but you need to understand your lending options loan structure, term & maturity dates, and possible subsidized loan programs you might be eligible for. There are a lot of online tools that will help give you a ballpark idea of what you can afford, but nothing replaces the expertise of a knowledgeable lender. Not only am I a real estate agent, I have over ten years lending experience and have helped hundreds of clients find homes that work for them and their budget. It really pays to talk to an expert!
