It might seem odd to think the first step when buying a home is not looking at a home. Getting your finances in order and understanding the money details associated with how to buy a home should be the first step before you consider looking at homes. It will break through a lot of barriers of how much you can afford, how much money you’re going to need at settlement, what type of loan programs you should consider; essentially how do you qualify. And so while looking at a home is fun, it makes more sense to get dirty in the details of how the money works so you can be more confident in the marketplace and buy a home you are going to enjoy the process at the same time.
