The first step in buying a home is securing financing and establishing a budget that you are comfortable with. We always encourage people applying for a first time mortgage loan to play it safe, and not maximize credit limits beyond what you’re comfortable with. This way you have room for unexpected moving, decorating, remodeling, and closing costs.
Your lender will tell you know how much you qualify for and provide you with a pre-approval letter.
Once you know how much you can afford, City View Properties will send you a list of all available properties and sort them for you by what is most important to you.
