4 Signs You’re Ready to Buy a Home in Brunswick, Hinckley, Strongsville

One common question from Ohio homebuyers this summer is “How do I know if I’m ready to buy a home?” You may be watching the market, hearing about mortgage rate increases, but how do you know if this is the right time for you? Now is indeed the time to purchase real estate in Medina County to avoid those climbing housing prices and rates, but here are a few more signs to help you decide:

You have a budget and use it wisely
One key for planning to purchase a home in Brunswick, Hinckley, Medina or Strongsville is setting a budget. Your budget will help you determine how much money you’re able to save for a downpayment and how much you can allocate to a potential house payment, utilities and maintenance costs. If you’re doing this already, you’re on the right track.

You have a downpayment
If you’ve got a budget in place and you have a downpayment ready to go— it might be time to make the move to homeownershipBOLD Real Estate Consultants can help you find the right property and in the right price range for you. Don’t be afraid to part with your downpayment, waiting for something bigger and better to come along— prices will only increase from here.

You have a backup fund
Making the leap toward owning your own home in Medina, Valley City, Columbia Station, North Royalton, Brunswick, Hinckley and Strongsville can be overwhelming, especially given the financial responsibility. If you have a “backup fund” in place with enough saved to cover 3 to 6 months of living expenses, you’re well prepared to purchase a home. For a homeowner, this is always a wise fund to have, just in case.

You’re paying down your debts
Your credit score is an important factor in your qualifying to purchase a home in Ohio. Start paying down your debts to better benefit your debt-to-income ratio. If your debts are few and under control, it might be time for you to start the house hunt and pre-approval process.
