Luckily, there are many resources available including local government housing agencies, online resources and knowledgeable Loan Officers willing to help you every step of the way. The hardest part is taking the first step, but a simple consultation may be just what you need to boost your confidence.

Your Guide to Homebuying

It’s important to understand all of the financial obligations that come with purchasing a home, but maybe you’re more of a Do-It-Yourself kind of buyer. Before rushing out to those open houses, you will first want to determine your buying power by checking your credit score, calculate your debt-to-income ratio and even getting pre-qualified!
