Buying a home is a huge decision. Having a plan early on in the process is key to a good home loan experience.
Here are some pointers on buying a home; start by thinking about your situation.
- How much space do you need?
- What areas of town do you like?
- How much can you afford in a monthly mortgage payment?
- Are you ready to buy a home?
After you answer these questions, make a “To Do” list and start doing casual research. Talk to friends and family, drive through neighborhoods, and look in the “Homes” section of the newspaper, or online.
