  • What features and characteristics are most important in the home I desire?
  • How many bedrooms and bathrooms do I feel are needed?
  • Where do I want to live?
  • How much time do I need to allow to purchase my home?
  • Approximately how much am I willing to spend to buy a home?
  • Do I have the needed funds available to purchase the home I desire?
  • Has a reputable mortgage lender pre-approved me for a loan sufficient to allow my purchase of a home in my desired price range?
  • Will the purchase of my home make it easier to achieve my short and long term goals?
  • What trade-offs am I willing to make?
