Before you decide on a mortgage for your Western North Carolina Mountain home, it’s important to organize your financial information. Financial documents, such as bank and credit card statements, retirement plan contributions, and tax returns, should be reviewed and catalogued. You should secure a net worth statement, which reviews your non-investment documents, like car titles and past or current mortgage payments. Reviewing your cash inflow and outflow is also important to look at before you decide on a mortgage. All of this is important to do to give you a good idea of what you can afford to pay. Another great way to see how much you can afford is to use our handy mortgage calculator.
We can help to get you started with the pre-qualification process and connect you with a local lender. By analyzing your financial situation, the lender will provide you with an estimate of the largest amount of mortgage you can afford. You will be presented with a pre-qualification certificate or letter stating the maximum loan for which you qualify. Armed with your mortgage pre-qualification certificate, you might think you now ready to begin your Highlands NC, Cashiers and Lake Toxaway home search in earnest, but before you start previewing homes, we recommend you read the following article Mortgage Types. We even included a Mortgage Calculator to help you determine what you can expect to pay per month for your vacation or retirement home here in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
