Buyer Mistake #1: Finance First, Look Later
One of the first mistakes buyers often make is that they get really excited about purchasing their new home and they dive right in to looking at homes online and scheduling showings in-person. But overlooking financing first is a big oversight.

If you’ve never undergone the process of applying for a mortgage before, you’ll be surprised to learn that the process is very involved and takes some time. You’ll have to gather many things together first for the mortgage officer, including verification of employment, bank statements, pay stubs and proof of deposit funds on loans.
It’s important to finance first because it’s a waste of your time to look for homes that are out of your budget. And conversely, you might be looking at homes that might not meet all your needs because you’re looking in too low of a range.

So ask your real estate expert for a list of financing referrals so you can shop around and find someone you would like to work with. There are many programs available right now, basically something for everyone. And with the prices of both homes and interest rates being so low, now may be the perfect time for you to buy!
