Buying your first home is a huge life milestone! Make sure you’re taking the right steps by checking off our top three tips for first-time homebuyers.
Save, SAVE, SAVE
Try to save $3,000-$6,000 for expenses like your downpayment, appraisal, inspection, and other closing costs. If you want more information about the upfront costs associated with purchasing your first home, our team will be happy to discuss the home buying process with you!
Improve your credit score
A credit score of at least 620 will help you get approved for a home loan, but the higher your score, the better your mortgage rate, so spend some time trying to bring up that score before you apply. If you want to talk details with a lender, we work with some great ones and would be happy to refer you
