The key of an opened house when you buy a house.

You are here! Congratulations! You have now decided to buy a house for your budding family. However, with all the uncertainties in the world, is barely acceptable good for your family? The dilemma of buying a property is not new. People had it and will have it. Nonetheless, if you know what to look for in a real estate purchase, you are ready! So here are our tips for you!

Why Buying a House is an Investment?

The famous real estate guru Robert Kiyosaki once said that housing is never an asset but a liability. However, in the present scenario, housing is still considered an asset. An asset is anything that has future economic value and can be usable in the process. The future value of a house may depend on its tangible properties like land or building, or it could come from intangible effects like historical significance, real estate appreciation, and other factors. That is why buying a house is still a good choice!

Buyer’s Checklist and Tips

Tip 1: Find a Trustworthy Realtor

We don’t need a realtor or a real estate agent when it comes to buying a house. However, the process will become easier with these trustworthy people. So, make sure you have people you can trust that will help you polish your house-shopping experience.

Tip 2: Know Your Finances

Another problem people face when buying their first house is their finances. Although if you have a good amount of money in the bank, this might be something you’ll skip over. However, for the good of everybody, you need to make sure that you can pay back the mortgage you’ll be getting when you have your first house. Companies commonly use your DTI (debt-to-income) ratio to know if you’re able to pay your mortgage. However, if you are under Pag-Ibig you can easily do this by tapping on your Pag-Ibig reps.

Tip 3: Find the Perfect Mortgage

After straightening out your finances, you can then connect with a bank that will finance your mortgage. Depending on your basic pay, you may have a bigger mortgage or not. Nonetheless, if you connect with Aroha Land Corporation, we have In-house financing that will surely help you earn your first house without any worry. If you contact us today, you’ll have an easy time waiting for your brand-new townhouse or farm lot!
