Where To Start?
As a loan officer, the best advice I can give is to start by making sure your finances are in order. You usually need to be at the same job, or at least same type of job for the last 2 years.
You will want to make sure you have some money in the bank saved for down payment and closing costs.
You want to make sure you can pay your bills on time as is, you don’t have late payments, collections, etc. Your credit report doesn’t have to be perfect, but it’s good to take care of those first.
Now, talk to a lender. They’ll run your credit for you, see what you have as expenses (liabilities) and based on that and your credit, what you can afford. This is going to give you a MAX you can pay for a home.
This doesn’t mean that’s what you want to pay for a home.
Once you’ve got a pre-approval letter, you go ahead and find a real estate agent. Your lender can refer you one, or you can find one.
Then it’s off to shopping for you home, putting in offers, and getting once accepted.
