Not sure if you’re ready to buy a home yet?
If you’re not sure if you can afford a mortgage, try saving the difference between a proposed mortgage payment and your rent payment. (Remember, a mortgage payment will include principle and interest payment plus the monthly payment of real estate taxes and home owners insurance.) Doing this helps you save for the down payment and closing costs for a home purchase. It also helps you practice paying for your mortgage and determine if the new payment is affordable with your lifestyle.
