The First Step for Home Buyers

First Step

Before you begin the process of buying a home, you will need to know how much home you can afford. Often, this comes down to how much of a home mortgage you can qualify for. The best thing to do is speak with a mortgage broker, bank, credit union, or home lender that specializes in working with home buyers. The pre-qualification process is pretty simple; home buyers are asked questions about their goals in buying a home, their individual finances including how much debt they have, what their income is, and about their job history. At the end of the interview, you will be provided with an estimate how much you, the home buyer can afford.
