5 of the Best Things You Can Do To Get Ready To Buy

CBS recently posted an article about the affordability of homes in America.  Sometimes when I meet a client that wants to buy a home, they simply aren’t ready yet.  And that’s ok!  I love helping folks get from where they are, to where they want to be.  Sometimes people are afraid to ask for help from a professional like me, because they think that all I do is take their application and tell them they don’t qualify.  Well don’t short yourself!

 

There are many things you can do to get yourself in a better position to buy.  You might think of it as a financial road map.  In fact we have a list of 5 of the best things to do to get ready to buy.  Financial Roadmap

Some people might say that you should save $, payoff debts, etc.  Yes those are clearly important.  But in my opinion the #1 thing you can do while waiting to buy is work on your credit.  That’s because with a good credit score you can:

  •  * Borrow more money compared to your income
  •  * Have access to more lenient program guidelines
  •  * Have access to more Lenders
  •  * Get better rates, which means saving money
  •  * Generally afford more home at a lower price

Now there are some very specific things you can do, on your own & for free, to help achieve this.  Of course everyone’s situation is different, and some require different approaches.  That’s why we start with a customized analysis of your situation.  If you, or someone you know, would like to learn more about the other 4 things you can do, simply click here to email me.   Or, you can click my name below to learn more about me, and how best to contact me.
