While a prequalification letter does require a review of your income, assets, and credit score – we make the process quick and painless.

Benefits of owning a house today

  • Asset Appreciation - Homes typically increase in value, which builds equity that can create long-term wealth.
  • Tax Deductions - Some housing-related expenses are tax deductible. It’s important to discuss any potential deductions with a licensed a tax professional.
  • Invest for the Future - You can make your money work for you by investing in real estate that can potentially be sold for a financial gain.
  • Security - Buying a home may provide for greater stability than renting. Housing expenses are usually predictable when you have a fixed interest rate home loan; whereas living in rental property can be unstable due to unexpected increases. Furthermore, renting does not provide the ability for real estate appreciation.
  • Pride in Home Ownership - Owning a home allows a buyer to settle into a community and establish long-term ties in a designated area.
  • Greater Privacy - Home ownership gives an increased sense of control over the space where you reside.

If you want to make that first step toward home ownership, there are several ways to obtain a home loan.

It’s important to realistically examine your current and future financial situation when starting the home buying process. Think about:

  • Savings – Do you have enough money to make a down payment? Do you have enough set aside to cover mortgage payments for a few months or more in case you lose your job, or to pay for emergency home repairs?
  • Spending – Are you disciplined enough to make all your home payments on time? Do you live within your means and have a household budget? Will you be able to prioritize monthly mortgage payments over other non-essential purchases?
  • Employment – How stable is your current income? Are you expecting a raise in the future? Is your employment situation stable, uncertain, or unpredictable?
  • Willingness to commit – Are you ready to make one of the most significant investments of your life? Are you ready for the responsibility of owning a home, and will you have the time to devote yourself to home maintenance and repair?

When you’re ready to start the process of buying a house, an Equity One Lending mortgage expert will help you answer these and all your other questions.

You’ll save time and energy during the home buying process if you decide what you want, and need, before you begin house hunting. Things to consider include:

  • Home style and size – What floor plan, square footage, number of rooms, and how much garage space do you need?
  • Location – Is the home close to schools, shopping, entertainment, parks, and your job?
  • Yard size and landscaping – Do you enjoy doing yard work, hosting outdoor parties, or do you need to have a pool?
  • Remodeling – Do you want your home to be move-in ready, or are you open to buying a fixer-upper?
  • Neighborhoods – Are the other area homes well-maintained? How’s the traffic, and congestion?
