A Mortgage Guide to Building Wealth

Getting into A Dream Mortgage Is As Easy as A, B, C

When building wealth, keep these things in mind to secure your desired mortgage amount

A. Credit

  • Credit is Queen, This is the most obvious of the three. Having a great credit score is essential to showing your aspiring lender that you can be trusted with the responsibility of paying the debt back.
  • The history, amount, type, specific number of active accounts, and on-time payments determine how responsible you are to the banks. But you already know that.


B. Lower Debt to Rate Income

  • Money lenders wanted to make sure that if all goes wrong that you’re still able to cover your debt responsibilities.
  • The Debt to rate income is the metric they use to measure this. By lowering your debt to rate income you’re lowering the risk that the bank will take to finance you.
  • What’s needed? You’re going to need at least 3 months of bank statements, and at least two years’ worth of employment history to provide to the bank.


C. Stay Home and eat off your parents as long as you can

If you have the option to stay home longer I’d advise that you consider it, here’s why.

  • Lower cost of living
  • Prioritized Saving and investing 
  • Increased focus on future planning
