Get Pre-Qualified for a Mortgage
Before you outline a price, and start shopping around, you’ll need to consult your bank regarding your mortgage. This will determine how much money your bank is able to loan you and ultimately help you decide how much to spend.
In order to pre-qualify for a mortgage, your bank will consider your income, your credit history, any outstanding debts you currently have unpaid, and how much of a down payment you plan on making.
