From renter to owner
Making that leap from renter to homeowner can be downright scary. But if you take it one step at a time, you may find it's not as challenging as you had originally imagined. Before you contact a Texas REALTOR®, get your credit in order. It's important to know what's on your credit report before meeting with your agent or applying for a loan. After obtaining copies of your credit report, contact a Texas REALTOR®. Your Texas REALTOR® will guide you through the homebuying process, alleviating any headaches or hassles.
Next, sit down with your REALTOR® and determine just how much home you can afford. It's not a good idea to stretch your budget too thin. You never know what surprises might lay ahead. Your REALTOR® will help you estimate a comfortable amount. Once you know your price range, get pre-approved for a loan. This will place you in a strong negotiating position with the seller. After meeting with a lender and obtaining a pre-approval letter, figure out exactly what you're looking for.
