Preparing to Buy


Before you start shopping for your property, it is a good idea to make some preparations.

Build Your Financial File.
A financial file contains all your important financial documents. You will need it to secure financing for your property. The typical green file should contain:

    • Financial statements
    • Bank accounts
    • Investments
    • Credit cards
    • Auto loans
    • Recent pay stubs
    • Tax returns for two years
    • Copies of leases for investment properties
    • life insurance, stocks, bonds, and mutual account information.

Be Careful With Your Finances.
Now is not a good time to make sudden career changes or large purchases. You want to approach your property purchase from a position of financial stability.
