How Much Can you Afford?
The first step towards financing a new home is getting pre-approved for a mortgage.  A mortgage is an advance of money from your lender that will cover the finances of your new property.  Over an extended period of time, you (the mortgagee) must pay the bank back each month a percentage of the money they lent you, plus interest until the loan sum is paid in full.  Thi sis how most homes are financed.

When you apply for a mortgage, you will need to furnish information regarding your income, expenses and obligations.  To save time, have the following items available for each borrower:
·      Two most recent pay stubs
·      W-25 for the last two years
·      Federal tax returns for the last two years
