Find a Mortgage Lender
Taking the first step in the home buying process can be intimidating.
The first thing you need to do is know what your priorities are.
Determine how long you plan on living in the home, what your desired neighborhood or area is, and what thing you will not compromise on. This is also the time to check your credit score and make sure you are in a good position to qualify for a mortgage.
Before beginning your house hunt make sure to find a lender who is right for you. This is one of the most important steps in the home buying process, because if you don’t know how much you can afford you don’t know what to look for.
It is important to be pre-approved for a loan before looking at homes, in case you find one you love and want to make an offer. In a fast moving market it is likely that your dream home will sell before you have time to get pre-approved.
