You want to buy a home, now what? I know the thought of purchasing your next home can be both exciting and scary. You probably talked yourself out of it a few times. And probably talked yourself back into the process a few times too. So while you’re spinning yourself in and out of home ownership here are some practical steps to get the process started.
- Check your credit report and get your finances in order. Look for any discrepancies and fix any problems that you find.
- Figure out how much you can afford. Get a better understanding of your income, debt and expenses.
- Get pre-approved by a lender. This will give you a better starting point when searching for a home.
- Hire a professional! A good agent will look out for your best interest and answer any questions you may have. Not to mention the overabundance of paperwork! An agent will hold your hand and walk you through the process, step by step, document by document with YOU as the first and top priority!
