Jacob’s Thoughts – Listed below are my random thoughts as I was reading this article.
- Looking back on my experience purchasing a condo, I think the most important step in the process was figuring out the finances, as that is really what drives the whole process.
- It’s important to be pre-approved for a home loan (not pre-qualified) that is sufficiently low enough to allow you to meet your long term savings goals while paying back your home loan.
