“I have just started looking and I don’t know what I am doing.” “I have just begun my search and not sure where to go or what to do.” “I don’t know where to start.”

These are the most common things people say when they start house hunting. This can lead to many people being frustrated and confused and stop looking at homes all together.


We understand that it is a overwhelming and confusing process, but by following these few steps you will be knowledgeable about where to go.


Step 1: Get pre-qualified. Before you start looking for your dream home, you need to know how much of a house you can afford. It isn’t beneficial to find a great big expensive house if you can’t afford it. If the mortgage lender you are with doesn’t offer any down payment assistance programs for you, try another company. Make sure that you shop around to get the best rate and price for you, we recommend that you get pre-qualified with two different mortgage companies. To get pre-qualified within 24-48 hours, please visit www.yourloanstartshere.com.


Step 2: Find a Realtor. After you know what you can afford you can then start looking at homes. Although finding a home in the paper or online is great, a Realtor is able to help you find the specifics that you want in a home, by having access to a larger house search. Once you talk with a Realtor you can then be put on a free home search, that fits your specific criteria.


Step 3: Find the perfect home. Once you find the right home you are then able to put an offer in and get the home of your dreams. Your realtor will be able to explain more about this process to you once you find the home of your dreams with the amount that you can afford.


Step 4: Get the mortgage. By being pre-qualified with your mortgage company you can then start the loan process and get the down payment assistance that is right for you. Remember that even if you are pre-qualified with someone, you can still search for a mortgage lender that is right for you.
