So How do you get started?
Step 1: Determine How Much House You Can Afford
Lenders generally recommend that people look for homes that cost no more than three to five times their annual household income if the home buyers plan to make a 20% down payment and have a moderate amount of other debt.
Step 2: Get Prequalified and Preapproved for credit for Your Mortgage
Before you start looking for a home, you will need to know how much you can spend. The best way to do that is to get prequalified for a mortgage. To get prequalified, you need to provide some financial information to your mortgage banker, such as your income and the amount of savings and investments you have. Your lender will review this information and tell you how much we can lend you. This will tell you the price range of the homes you should be looking at. Later, you can get pre-approved for credit, which involves providing your financial documents (W-2 statements, paycheck stubs, bank account statements, etc.) so your lender can verify your financial status and credit.
Here are a few great mortgage lenders to choose from.

GET A TERMITE INSPECTION BEFORE BUYING YOUR HOME!
If you are in the process of buying a house—congratulations! Whether it is your very first home or you are simply relocating to a new home, buying a house is an exciting time. What is less than exciting, however, is moving into your new home and discovering that it has structural damage caused by termites and pests. Before you move into your new home, it is important to have a termite inspection performed, so you avoid any unforeseen costs or damages. Termites can cause more than $5 billion in property damage each year and are known as “silent destroyers” because of their ability to chew through wood, flooring and even wallpaper. While it would take a single termite roughly 3,100 years to eat the wood in a 1,000-square-foot home, termites never exist alone. In fact, termite colonies can range from a few thousand individuals to several million, depending on their species. Several colonies can also live together on one acre of land—meaning millions of termites could have access to your home at any time. The areas of a home that are most vulnerable to termite damage are slab foundations, areas where wood touches dirt and inaccessible crawlspaces.
