How To Prepare For The Home Buying Process

You’re ready to buy a home and have begun to move forward in the process. However, while you’re out there searching for your perfect home, there are some things you want to be clear on to make the entire process a little easier.

The first thing you should do, before anything else, is to speak with your loan officer to get pre-qualified to get an idea on what you can afford. Do not mistake pre-qualified with getting pre-approved. Yes, there is a difference. To get pre-qualified, you’re finding out if you qualify for a home loan. To be pre-approved, this is where you actually get approval for the loan. This process is a lot longer and requires much more paperwork and information (tax info, paycheck stubs, etc). If you have any questions about these or are ready to begin the process, speak with a loan officer at your bank or credit union.

Once you’re approved for your home loan, look at the different areas and neighborhoods you’d like to live in. Do some research on the school’s in that area, find out what the neighbors are like, and everything else.

Your home is an investment. Because of this, you want to take your time and find the home of your dreams. Write a list of pros and cons on what is are “musts” in your home and what are “would likes” to help you decide, going in, what you want from your home.
