From MoneyTips: Durante años, que ha estado soñando sobre la compra de su primera casa y ahora usted está debatiendo la toma de medidas. ¿Estás listo para entrar en el mercado de compra de vivienda? Tenga en cuenta estas siete señales antes de dar el paso.
1. Having job security — Mortgage loan approvals require a steady regular income. Is your employment situation secure enough that you can commit to buying a home? Being out of work is bad enough, but being out of work with a brand new mortgage is disastrous.
2. Commitment to the area — Generally, realtors recommend that you plan to stay in a home for a minimum of five to seven years. If your situation is still fluid, buying may not be for you. Buying a home is a long process, and you do not want to have to sell one in a rush soon after a purchase. Most of your payments are going to interest in the early years, so you will have built up very little equity.
