Increased Borrowing Capacity:

With the funds from selling your business and an improved financial position, you may qualify for a higher mortgage amount. This can open up the possibility of purchasing a more luxurious or higher-priced home that aligns with your dream home vision.

Improved Debt-to-Income Ratio:

If you have existing debts, such as business loans or other financial obligations, selling your business and paying off those debts can improve your debt-to-income ratio. Lenders consider this ratio when evaluating your mortgage application. A lower debt-to-income ratio can increase your chances of qualifying for a larger mortgage or obtaining more favorable loan terms.

Financial Flexibility:

Selling your business can provide you with greater financial flexibility, enabling you to explore various home-buying options. Whether it's a custom-built home, a property in your desired neighborhood, or a house with specific features you've always wanted, the additional funds from the business sale can make these options feasible.
