BUDGET

Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make. It’s important to figure out how much you can afford to spend before you start looking for a home.

GET PRE-APPROVED

If you need to borrow money for your purchase, it’s very important to be pre-approved for a mortgage before you start looking for a home.

COST OF OWNERSHIP

Your mortgage payment will probably be the biggest expense, but there are other costs you should be aware of. You don’t want any unpleasant surprises!
