Key Takeaways

Print version

When you buy a home, you have to think about more than just the sale price. But don’t worry, with a little planning and research you could know just what to expect.

  • If you can, save a down payment of at least 20% of the sale price
  • Don’t forget to factor closing costs into your home-buying budget
  • If you’re buying, get a closing-cost estimate ahead of time from your lender
  • Find out if you qualify for alternative mortgage options, and if they might be right for you
