Start with the following steps to help you figure out if your finances are in the right place to buy a house in North Aurora.

Before anything else, calculate how much house you can afford. This will help you set a price range while house shopping in North Aurora. Then, add up the potential monthly payments (including home repairs, insurance, homeowners association fees, property taxes, etc.). It's okay if these numbers are educated guesses. Searching the web for North Aurora averages will usually give you a solid estimate, though everyone's situation is different. Remember that the bulk of your monthly homeowner expenses could be your monthly mortgage payment.

Now, figure out what a realistic down payment would be for you. Placing a minimum of 20% down can boost your chances of getting a great rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). That said, down payment requirements can differ depending on the loan type. Here's where it can help to get prequalified for a mortgage. Prequalification points you in the right direction as far as how much you may be eligible to borrow. Also, take a good look at your credit. Credit history is an important part of your mortgage application. The healthier your credit is, the more mortgage options you may have open to you— and options are always a good thing!
