10 Steps to Buying a Home

10 Steps to Buying a Home

1. Start Researching Early

Start reading newspaper, magazines and visit websites that have real estate listings. Note of the type of construction, features, and style of the homes you are interested in and how long they are listed on the market. Also, take not of the fluctuation of asking prices. This will give you a good idea of the market trends in the area you are looking.


2. Determine How Much You Can Spend

Mortgage lenders recommend that home buyers look for homes that are priced no more than 3-5 times the households income, if they decide to make a 20% down payment and have a low to moderate amount of debt.
