To help you in your decision making process, here are some areas of interest:

1. Qualifying Questions:

First, can you afford to buy? Are you renting right now? If so, is what you pay to rent similar to what it would cost to purchase a home? Does it make sense for you to buy? What are your motivating factors?
Do you currently own a home? If so, would you rent it out or sell it? What is the market value of your current home? How much of a down payment on a new purchase could you acquire? What would your new mortgage payment look like?
Why do you want to move? How motivated are you?
