Ensure Your Financials Are in Order

Once you’ve decided that you would like to purchase a home, you’ll need to check in on your finances, specifically your credit score, the amount you have towards a down payment, and how much you will be able to pay each month. Different types of mortgages require varying credit scores and down payment amounts. Knowing where you stand and what you can afford upfront will help you sort through the types of mortgages much easier and decide which is right for your situation.

Research Mortgage Lending Companies

Once you have your finances in order, it’s time to choose a mortgage lender. You’ll want to find a lending institution that is reputable and offers several types of mortgages so that you can choose the one that is best for you.

One of the best and easiest ways to find the right mortgage lending company — and the right mortgage is by working with a mortgage broker like Gwynne Price at United Mortgage Loans.

Find Your Dream Home and Close!

After you’ve been pre-approved and you know your price range, you can connect with a real estate agent and start looking at homes! Once you decide on a home and make an offer, the lending institution will finalize your mortgage and you’ll begin the closing process.
