1.  Create a savings account specifically for purchasing your new home. This money will go towards your down payment and any unknown repairs in the future. 

2. Work on your credit score. The higher your score the better your chances are of getting approved with a lower interest rate. 

3. Go over your finances to see how much house you can actually afford. I always ask my clients what they’re comfortable paying per month.

4. Contact a lender to start the pre-approval process. If you’re not familiar with any lenders contact a Realtor. Your Realtor works with lenders on a regular basis and will be able to give you a few recommendations. 

5. Start searching for homes based on the amount you were approved for and be ready to submit an offer. Homes are flying off the market. When you see one you like act fast before it’s too late.
