The quick answer is “Not Necessarily”.

Before you rush out to pay off student loans, vehicle loans, visa’s and mastercards’s, you may want to call me first.

Paying off your bills depletes your savings and may eat up the cash you were planning on using towards the down payment.

Don’t get me wrong, being debt free is a great idea, but if it hinders your purchasing ability, it might not be your best option.

On the other hand, if you need to lower your total debt to income ratio, paying off some debt may be a good thing.

Typically, debts with the highest monthly payments affect you qualifying ability the most.

Remember, there so much more to a mortgage than just great rates
