Steps To Buying A Home
It’s necessary to get qualified before following through with the home-buying process. If you require a loan, mortgage lenders will look at your credit score, credit report, the equity of your current home, your debt-to-income ratio, past income tax filings, and possibly other factors that create your credit footprint. Part of purchasing a home is being aware of costs associated with the home purchase (settlement fees and down payments, traditionally at least 3.5% of the sales price). The process of getting qualified is vital and can be very easy. You, the customer, are free to choose a lender and begin the lending process. The two main parts of finding a lender are looking at rates the lender can offer you based on your credit profile. Some lenders offer incentives such as closing costs or just good rates. The second part is finding a lender that offers you the level of service you will be satisfied with, as you have the right to choose who to work with. You want a good communicator on the other end that you are comfortable with and acceptably responds to your needs. Some consumers use a bank they are already established with; however, a private mortgage company can often offer things a bank cannot. Researching on your own or asking your REALTOR® is a great place to start before deciding.
The next step is the home search: searching for homes that meet your budget and preferences and narrowing them down to the homes on which you will ultimately make an offer. The next step in the home search process is finding the perfect location to all the details, sizes, rooms and features you want in a home.
