Steps to Buying Your First Home
You’ve decided to buy your 1st home, how exciting! If you’re unsure how to begin the process of buying your first home, here are 5 steps I’ve come up with to help you get started.
**Even if you’re a year or 2 off from purchasing your first home, it’s never too late to get started on #1 and #2.
1: Improve your credit score: get out of debt, no major purchases, stay current on bills, no major career changes.
2: Save money: down payment, earnest money & emergency house fund.
3: Talk to a mortgage lender: get financing options, find out what you can afford, go through the pre-approval process, it’s okay to talk to a couple lenders and get more than one quote.
4: Decide what you need/want: make your needs & wants list of what you would like in a new home.
5: Contact Darcy: it’s as easy as that! I will walk you through your first-home buying experience and answer all your questions every step of the way.
