Here’s a whirlwind tour of the most important tips I can give you for buying a home.
First, get pre-approved for your loan so you know what you can afford.
Second, start driving around different neighborhoods to find the ones you’d like to live in.
Third, investigate those areas by checking the crime rate at the police station and checking the school district zoning.
Fourth, avoid major purchases, like a car. It will show up negatively on your credit report.
Fifth, don’t open any new credit cards. And never close credit card accounts. These show up on your credit report, too.
Sixth, when you close the transaction, you’ll be overwhelmed with paperwork. It’s your duty to read all the documents you sign. It could take several hours, but you need to know what you’re signing.
