RE/MAX Advantage I

When you think of your real estate budget, you should know that the more you spend on a home, the more overhead costs youíll face. Youíll need to pay for things like real estate agent fees, attorneys fees, and other closing costs. The more you pay for a house, the higher all of these fees will be since they are usually percentage based. So, the overarching question is how do you budget and find a reasonable amount of money to spend on a home? 


Prioritize


Your real estate agent may show you a myriad of homes across many different price ranges. Each property will have pros and cons. You can look at seeing these homes as an educational experience. Viewing properties could even help you hone in on what you want in a home. There are a few good reasons to look at homes above your budget range. 


Housing Prices Could Rise Or Drop


When housing prices begin to rise, people tend to believe that theyíll keep climbing. The panic couldnít be further from the truth. Eventually, the prices need to drop. The idea of buying a property and adding value is to make a bit of a profit back when you go to sell. You need to be prepared for anything when you head out to buy a home. Price changes will apply to you if you plan on living in your new home only for a specified period. If you donít have plans in your future to move, you may not worry about home value changes quite as much when shopping for a property. 


Mortgages End Eventually


If you plan ahead, you donít have to pay mortgages for the rest of your life. If you keep moving and taking out 30-year mortgages, you could be making mortgage payments forever. If the average family stays in their home for around a decade, that's not a significant amount of time. Here, youíll find a great reason not to max out your budget on a home. If you buy a less expensive house, you can get the mortgage paid off faster. You may even be able to take the mortgage out for a shorter term. Paying your home off more quickly allows your financial freedom. Itís simple, yet many people opt for a bigger house that they arenít planning on staying in, causing a bit of a financial headache.


You Need A Rainy Day Fund


If you avoid maxing out your budget to buy a home, youíll be able to save a bit for any emergencies that come up. You will be under less stress knowing that you have a little bit of money set aside in case your home needs major repairs, or you face a job loss or illness. In conclusion, itís never a good idea to max out your budget on a home purchase.
