1. Do I qualify for a mortgage? It’s important to think about what your monthly payment will be in a financial capacity. You need to figure out if you have enough income to make your monthly mortgage payments and still have money left over. Some lenders will ask for a basic income tax and/or W-2 information. Others will ask for additional tax information.
Lenders are constantly changing the parameters and terms for obtaining financing. Most people still need to get a loan to purchase a home. There are more cash buyers in some areas but most Americans still finance their home. With mortgage rates at historic lows, money is almost free to borrow. Getting financing is not as difficult as you might think in 2021.
