I’ll gather financial documents at the same time.
This is a smart approach. By gathering your financial paperwork upfront, you’ll have less stress when you do find the home you want. Sometimes the process can go very quickly when you have found the home that’s a fit for you, and it’s hard to find the time to get all of your paperwork in order.
Lenders rely on information about your finances to determine how much they are willing to lend to you and at what interest rate. Gathering your paperwork early has two great benefits.
- You have plenty of time to find your documents. Documents showing your income from the most recent two years like your W-2s, or your signed tax returns, will likely be necessary. These are documents you may have to search for, or may even need to make a few calls to get. When you have these documents, you can review them and ensure that all the information is correct. You could even meet with lenders to review this information and see if anything further may be necessary to document your ongoing, expected sources of income.
- It will take one more thing off your plate when you do find the home you want. Gathering your paperwork now, and keeping it all in the same place, makes for less stress later.
