Most people know that it takes a lot of preparation to be able to own your own home. It requires planning and research and isn’t something that can be rushed into! To make sure that you are as prepared as possible, check out this post by L Bee and the Money Tree at Financial Best Life. Here are just some of the things you need to get done before even thinking of buying a home:
-Build your wishlist! Know what you’re looking for. Location? Number of bedrooms? Neighborhood? Fenced in backyard? Garage?
-Get pre-qualified/pre-approved for a mortgage, shop around for the best interest rates.
-Include all fees/closing costs in your budget.
-Have all your financial documents together before applying.
