Home Buyers Guide
Check your credit score and clean up your credit
Many credit card companies offer FICO score reports free of charge. Check your credit card provider. Minimum FICO scores should be 580 and higher to qualify for some loans.
Find out how much house you can afford.
There are many calculators online or have a mortgage lender give you an idea of what you can afford with a soft credit pull without impacting your credit. By knowing what you can afford, it'll help you narrow down your home choices.
Get pre-approved by a mortgage lender.
Sellers will not take potential buyers seriously without a pre-approval letter or verification of funds. Get a pre-approval in hand before searching for your home.
Create a list of the most important features in the home and location.
By having a checklist, this will help you and your family narrow down the most important features in the home you're searching for.
