Tip for Renters Thinking About Purchasing a Home
If you are thinking about buying a home, there are a number of things you can do to get ready.
First and foremost, start working with a mortgage broker. A mortgage will start the process by pre-qualifying you, which will show you how much you can afford to spend on a home.
After reviewing your financial situation, a good mortgage broker like Marimark Mortgage will make recommendations as to how you can improve your financial position to qualify for a lower mortgage rate and qualify to spend more on your home.
