All Buyers including First-time Buyers
Here are some tips for all buyers to do, First Check your credit score or if you already have a lender let them check it for you so you will know if you are ready to start shopping for properties.
If you are not already working with a lender then you need to call a few to see which one can get you the best interest rate on a loan. Make sure to tell them you are a first time home buyer (if you have not bought in the last 5 years you may qualify for this always ask) and see what type of a loan you qualify for. If you are a veteran make sure to ask about VA loans but do not limit yourself to just a VA loan make sure to compare it to other loans because it may not be your best option.
