Important Things To Do When Ready To Buy A Home
- Check your credit. Make sure you know what's in it and what your credit score is.
- Get Approved. Yes, it is more difficult to get a mortgage than in the past, but there are programs available for first time home buyers as well as programs that don't require 20% down or don't require scores in the 700's +. You need to talk to a Lender who will take the time to explain the pros and cons of those programs and what the best options are for your particular situation. If you belong to a Credit Union, it is a good place to start. Once you have your mortgage credentials in hand, you will be in a position of strength when you find the right home.
- DO NOT make a major purchase such as a new car just before applying for a mortgage. It could throw your ratios out of balance and jeopardize your chances of getting the home you wanted.
