Give It Your Best Offer
Smart strategies to buy in a tight market
Some lenders may go farther, however, and “pre-
underwrite” the loan, says Gibran Nicholas, CEO
of the CMPS Institute, which certifies mortgage
bankers and brokers.
By “pre-underwriting” a lender works with a
buyer to secure all the information that can be sup-
plied before there’s a specific home the buyer has
put forth a purchase offer on, Nicholas says. For
instance, when documents like bank statements
showing a borrower built his savings for a down
payment over a period of months, and his past few
income tax returns can speed up processing once a
home is selected.
Moreover, agents say some lenders will agree to
call the listing agent to assure them that they have
carefully reviewed the buyer’s mortgage applica-
tion, and anticipate no problems.
A dose of realism, however: Know that despite
your best efforts, you could lose out to a buyer who
doesn’t need financing, but is paying cash.
Indeed, real estate investors looking to rent out a
home buy most frequently in the $100,000 to
$300,000 range, notes Daren Blomquist, senior vice
president, ATTOM Data Solutions.

You Can’t
Always Get
What You
Want
How to set a realistic home budget
By Carley Lintz

Talking about money isn’t fun. When searching for your first house,
though, it’s crucial to set a realistic budget lest you end up with more
home than you can actually afford.
“To figure out what you can afford when you’re saving for a home, a
good rule of thumb is to ask yourself, ‘How much should I borrow?’
instead of, ‘How much could I borrow?’ This approach focuses on the
amount that comfortably fits your budget,” advises Kathy Cummings,
Senior Vice President of Homeownership Solutions, Bank of America.
To figure out a manageable monthly mortgage payment, Cummings
recommends using an online affordability calculator, or, taking your
monthly income before taxes and multiplying it by 28 percent. This
gives you a rough estimate of how much you can afford to pay each
month, including taxes and insurance.
When building your home budget, don’t forget to figure in extra
costs. These include one-time expenses like closing costs, home
inspections and moving fees as well as recurring payments like taxes
and mortgage insurance. Buyers should also be prepared for post-
move in costs, such as new furnishings and home maintenance or
repair costs.
There are also resources available to help you set – and stick to – a
smart home-buying budget. “Seek the help of homebuyer education
programs and credit counselor for assistance,” advises Cerita Battles,
SVP and Head of Retail Diverse Segments for Wells Fargo Home
Mortgage. “These resources can support aspiring homeowners on top-
ics like saving for a down payment, budgeting and improving credit
score and can be available online, by phone and in person.”
