5 steps to buying a home
- Get pre-approved for a mortgage loan: Before you start the home-buying process, it’s important to get pre-approved for a loan to ensure you can get the financing you need. This process involves talking to a lender to provide information about your finances, including your income, credit score, and down payment amount
- Start shopping for a home: Once you’ve been pre-approved for a mortgage loan, you can begin shopping for a home. Research the area you’d like to live in, determine your budget, and start searching for homes that fit your needs.
- Make an offer on the home: Once you’ve found a home you like, make an offer to the seller. You’ll need to provide a good faith deposit to show the seller you’re serious about the purchase. You may need to negotiate back and forth on the price and other terms of the purchase.
- Secure a home inspection: After you’ve agreed to the purchase, it’s important to have a home inspection done. The inspector will evaluate the condition of the home and provide a report on any potential issues.
- Close on the home: The final step in the home-buying process is to close on the property. This involves signing all the paperwork to finalize the sale. You’ll also need to provide the remaining balance for the purchase price and pay any closing costs.
