Kansas City Home Finder

Are You Ready For Home Ownership?

First-time buyers are sometimes not sure what to do first in the buying process. Are you ready for home ownership? What can you afford? What do you actually want in a home? All of these are great questions and we've worked with so many first time buyers that we recommend getting in touch with us first to get you started on this very exhilarating property adventure! This tool gives you some good advice and a few things to think about while pondering your home buying decision.

How Much House Can You Afford?

Once you've worked out that you are ready to buy a home and you have some ideas of what you want in your property, the next question is can you afford it? We have a very simple mortgage calculator that gives you an idea of what your payments will be each month. Getting in contact with a bank and finding out more information is our next recommendation. What you think you can afford is very different from what a bank will allow you to borrow. It's a good idea to know what you're able to borrow from the bank before deciding on what home you're interested in. Staying within your budget is key and will make you a much happier homeowner down the road.

Schools Near Kansas City

It's so important that every member of the family is considered when you're buying a home in any city. If you're new to the area, you may not know anything about the school system.

We have created this page so our clients can take some time and look at some of the best schools in the area and see if this works for the housing styles and proximity to work that is also important in the buying process. We have much more information on area schools that we look forward to sharing with you.
