Your First Step
Your first step in buying a home is to ask yourself the question why. Are you looking to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move into a bigger house?
Next would be to list out what kind of home you’d like and what location you would like to be in. Be specific in your needs and separate the “must haves” from the “want to haves.” Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target from the general to the very specific. Consider the area (city, suburban neighborhood, country), community (north, south, east, or west side) and neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new, a particular school zone, recreational facilities, and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how long you are willing to travel to commute to work.
Next, that to think about home styles and how much space you really need? Does your situation require a one-level home or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and type of property and how long you expect to live in this particular home. Do you want a newer home or maybe an older one to fix up? Because someday you or your heirs may want to sell the home.
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
Once you have addressed all of your needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get a pre-qualified loan with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes.
