Can I apply for a loan before finding a home to purchase?
Yes. Submitting a loan application before you find your next home is wise. When you apply in advance, On Q Financial will issue a pre-qualification letter subject to you finding your new home. You can use this letter to assure real estate professionals and sellers that you are a qualified buyer. This pre-qualification process can also give you the peace of mind that you are looking in the right price range to fit your budget.
Why should I buy a home rather than rent?
Paying a mortgage payment each month for your home can be as affordable as renting, and in some part of the United States, it can be more affordable to own rather than rent. Home buyers can compare costs by researching home prices in the areas they want to live, calculate what a mortgage loan would cost them, and compare that to the cost of renting a similar type of home.
The biggest advantages of owning a home, rather than renting, are building equity and earning tax advantages. Homeowners can build their wealth as they gain more equity over the course of time.
