Getting pre-approved will kickstart your home buying process. It will give you a better idea of how much you can borrow, your estimated monthly mortgage costs, and what interest rates you can expect on your loans. When sellers see you’ve been pre-approved, they know to take your offer seriously.
Use my printable Needs and Wants list to write down what you want your looking for in your home. Such as number of beds/baths, the style of home, location, etc. Then break that list down into high-priority needs you can’t live without and lower-priority things that would be an added bonus.
Once you know how much you can afford and what you’re looking for in a home, it’s time to start your search. And the best place to start is online. Check out my search page to view all available homes listed on the MLS.
If you find yourself interested in more than one home, you can use my printable home comparison worksheet to do a side-by-side comparison of up to five homes. This is a great time to refer back to your wants and needs list to see where your high priority features rank.
