Your best friend is wrong. You need to get a job. My suggestion is that you should get a job in the same line of business than your previous job if possible. That would give the Lender a strong indication that you have experience in that line of business. Without a salary, how are you going to be paying your mortgage every month?
You absolutely need to have a job to qualify for a mortgage. My best advice is to get another job in the same industry asap if you can. A lender most likely will not question if you have a little time lasp as long as you get another job doing relatively the same thing and relatively the same salary/hourly pay.
It would be a waste of your time to look for homes before you find a job, no only for you but for your agent.
Spend your time now on the job and look after you have secured a steady job.
Did you know there are only 6 months left until the Free $8,000 tax credit expires?
Start looking NOW â€“ the average homebuyer takes 2-3 months to find and settle on a home
The deadline to settle is November 30th 2009â€”do your friends a favor, tell them to call us today
