There are many critical factors involved in determining the best way to finance your home. The first step in the buying process is to determine the price range that is right for you. You will need to consider how much cash you are prepared to invest and how much money you will need to borrow.
Your cash on hand will have to cover both the down payment and any closing costs associated with the purchase. Closing costs vary significantly based on the terms of any loan you may obtain, but are generally 2% to 4% of the purchase price. There are also moving expenses to remember.
