If you're considering buying a home, it's a big decision requiring careful planning. Here are some tips to help you get started:

First, check your credit score. It is important because it tells lenders how responsible you are with money and can impact your mortgage interest rate. You can get a free credit report from AnnualCreditReport.com and review it for errors. If you find any mistakes, report them to the credit agency immediately.


Next, start saving for a down payment. Aim to save 20% of the average price of the homes you're interested in buying. It will help you get a lower interest rate and make it easier to pay for other expenses that come with owning a home.

Consider your plans, especially if you're buying a home with a partner or friend. Consider where you want to live, whether you like a yard, and if you want to be in a neighborhood with good schools if you have or plan to have kids.

Make a budget for your monthly mortgage payment and other expenses like taxes and insurance. You want to avoid ending up with a payment that is too high and leaves you struggling to pay other bills.

When you're ready to start looking at homes, get pre-approved for a mortgage from a reputable lender. It will show sellers that you're a serious buyer and give you an idea of how much you can afford.

If you have questions or need help with the pre-approval process, contact me.
