Your first step towards buying a home is to define the reasons why you want to purchase a new home. To stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To move up to a bigger house?
Determine the type of home and area in which you'd like to live
Develop a “Needs” vs. “Wants” List• Basic needs should be considered first, like number of bedrooms, or parking spaces.
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Approval
Once you've built your list, get pre-approved with a mortgage provider.
A pre-approval will give you a clear idea of what you can afford. A lender will review your credit history, verify your assets and employment, and – best of all - will pre-approve your loan at a guaranteed interest rate.
Pre-approval gives you leverage: Sellers see you as a serious buyer. You’ll be able to move quickly and make a stronger offer when you find the right home.
