Home Buying for Newlyweds

MANAGING YOUR MONEY

You now cherish a memorable proposal and it seems that wedding plans are consuming all of your free moments. You have to decide on flowers, food, decorations, attire, colors, reception location, music and the guest list...your details can overwhelm you, but there is one thing that you should focus on MOST - even in the midst of the chaotic wedding planning.

ASK YOURSELF:

  • Where will you live when you begin your new life together?

  • Will you come back from your honeymoon and live with your parents?

  • Will you cram everything from the wedding in the bride or groom's apartment?

OR WILL YOU BE BLESSED ENOUGH TO MOVE RIGHT INTO A HOME OF YOUR OWN?

When you're thinking about your living arrangements after you're married, there's nothing like knowing you will own your OWN HOME TOGETHER! It's not hers or his, but yours together...and perhaps it will be the place where you start your family.

Gathering relevant financial information is your first step to homeownership. Before you fall in love with a home, you'll first need to know what it takes to qualify to purchase a home. You need to know that your financing has already been arranged (pre-approved) and the following questions have been answered:

  • How much home can you afford?

  • What is the comfortable mortgage payment for us?

  • What are the additional expenses with purchasing a home?

  • How soon do we want to pay down our mortgage?

If you've been blessed to save or receive money for a down payment as a wedding gift, or one or both of you owns a house or condo you're considering selling to trade-up to a family home then you should really consider talking with a trusted mortgage lender to get the knowledge you need to pursue purchasing your first home together.

SAY "I DO" TO HOMEOWNERSHIP is an easy to read e-book designed especially for those that are engaged to be married or for couples recently married, but haven't yet purchased their first home.

SAY "I DO" TO HOMEOWNERSHIP is a Newlywed Home Buying Guide. It is full of practical information that both of you must know about each other in order to come into agreement about your new home purchase. For example: his likes, her likes, location, room to grow, price, square footage, and other very important amenities.

It will also help you explore ideas on how to discuss these important topics, including:

  • Disclosing your credit history to your mate

  • Discussing your financial habits (how do you manage money)

  • Strengthening your ability to save and sacrifice

  • Keeping your accountability to achieve goals (setting a timeline)

  • Learning how to operate on a budget

  • Agreeing to eliminate debt

  • Developing a "wish list" for your new home

BUT, MOST IMPORTANTLY...

IT WILL HELP GUIDE YOU ON THE IMPORTANCE OF INCLUDING GOD IN YOUR DECISION MAKING AS A COUPLE!

Sounds like something you need, huh? It's a good investment for you!

So, you see...

This is not your typical home buying book. It is different, because it focuses on bringing two individuals together in agreement to achieve the goal of purchasing a home that both partners can enjoy, celebrate and be proud to call home!

SAY "I DO" TO HOMEOWNERSHIP will be available to you in an easy to download e-book format. You and your fiance' or spouse can download this information and get started immediately! The cost of the e-book is only $4.99 (can you say whew...nothing so far has been that inexpensive)!
