What To Do and NOT To Do Before Purchasing a New Home

What NOT to do before purchasing a new home:

  1. Don’t finance new big-ticket items. New financing will increase your debt-to-income ratio.
  2. Don’t open a new line of credit. Building good credit is a slow and steady process.
  3. Don’t switch jobs. Show potential lenders you are a low risk applicant by not making any major life changes.
  4. Don’t move your money. Lenders want to see consistent savings habits and for all deposits to be well documented.
  5. Don’t do it alone. While it certainly is possible to buy a home without a professional, a good real estate agent can save you time, money, and stress.

What SHOULD you do?
