Before you purchase a property, you’ll need to organize and examine your finances. Your lender will want to know your income, assets, debt and credit level. What can you afford to pay for a mortgage? MyTaxologist can help you face the daunting challenge of preparing to qualify for a mortgage loan.
Is your credit less than stellar? MyTaxologist can help you with credit repair to restore a good credit score – a crucial issue when applying for a mortgage. A good credit score means you are less of a credit risk, and that’s just what lenders are looking for.

A Basic Property Buyers Checklist
Here are a few things to consider when you are thinking about purchasing a property.
There are lots of costs associated with buying a property. Is the property large enough for the intended purpose? Would you need to do any repair, remodeling or expansion? What else do you need to go with/on the property? What about your purchase costs – down payment, closing costs, insurance, property taxes, appraisal and/or inspection fees? All these costs and what method to cover them should be considered well before you begin the process of making a purchase.
Type of Property
Know what you are looking for. Know the space you need, the style of architecture, the amenities you need, the resources in the neighborhood – and know your long term needs, so you don’t have to move again in a year or two.
Location, Location, Location
Where your property is located can be a really crucial issue, especially if you are trying to start or expand a business. How’s the neighborhood? Can you easily get to needed resources in the area – schools, shopping, etc? Are there security measures for the building, or can you put some in? How’s the parking situation? There are many issues that must be considered in order to find just the right place, so you don’t end up with buyer’s remorse.
The New York State Property Condition Disclosure Statement serves as a great checklist for property issues to check on before you purchase a property. It’s pretty thorough, so grab a cup of tea and sit down to take a look: https://www.dos.ny.gov/forms/licensing/1614-a.pdf
We also have a full length Home Buyer Checklist. This pretty much covers everything.
