How Can I Prepare To Buy a Home?
Buying a home is one of the biggest financial decisions of your life. Many people may have done their search preparations: picking a neighborhood, researching schools, making a “must have” list, deciding on favorite home styles and how much work you want to put into a house.
But what many people forget to do it their financial preparations. Are you actually in a position to buy? And how much can you afford? The FIRST step in your search process should always be to meet with a reputable lender and get pre-approved for a loan. A good lender is an ally who can guide you through different loan options and also get your paperwork in order so when you find that perfect home, you can write an offer that day. In a hot market like ours that can be the difference between getting your dream home and losing out to a better prepared buyer.
