Buying Roadmap

Buying a home can seem overwhelming at first; however, there are many steps that should take place prior to looking for a home that will make the process much smoother.

First Things First:

1. Get a credit check
2. Get pre-qualified for a loan

These two elements are crucial prior to looking for a home. By checking your credit early on, you ensure time to correct any errors that may be found in your credit report. Getting Pre-qualified for a loan ensures you are aware of your allowed mortgage and budget when looking for homes. Pre-qualified buyers also bring a stronger case when a contract is being considered by a seller.
