Buying a Boston condos for sale can be a complicated process, especially if you need to apply for a mortgage. Having as much information about the process of applying for a loan can help you make appropriate decisions. When applying for a mortgage, here are some do’s and don’ts to keep in mind.

Get Pre-approval for a Loan

By getting preapproved for a loan before the house hunting begins, you’ll know exactly what you can afford. This way, you can limit your search to homes within your budget and won’t be tempted to stretch your budget. A preapproval can also be beneficial when it comes to putting an offer on the home because income and assets have already been verified.

Gather All Financial Records and Other Documents

Before starting the home buying process, gather all documents that show your income, verification of your employment, and any debt you have. Financial documents that may be needed to get preapproved for a loan include W2s, paystubs, tax return documents, and bank statements. You should also be prepared to hunt down any additional documents the loan officer needs.

Reduce Debt

Lenders take debt-to-income ratio into consideration when qualifying a future homeowner for a mortgage loan. The less debt you have to make payments on every month, the more likely you will qualify for a mortgage loan. Before applying for a mortgage loan, pay off as much of your debt or consolidate consumer debt as much as possible.
