If every first-time homebuyer did this, they would have a way easier time closing on a home and experience way less house heartbreak. If you want to buy your first home, here’s what you need to do: get pre-approved before you start looking at homes! When you get pre-approved, you find out exactly how much you can take out on a mortgage for a house. This is invaluable information because you’ll know that you can’t get a loan for a higher amount, which will help you avoid homes that are over your budget. Plus, when you have a pre-approval, sellers will know that you’re good for your offer and are much more likely to be able to close the deal.
Think winter is a bad time to put your home on the market? Think again! While it’s a common belief that the best time to list your home is the warmer months, the winter has some distinct advantages like these: Less competition: Because many sellers wait to put their homes on the market in the spring, there are fewer homes for sale in the winter. This is a good thing for you because it means that your home has less competition! More visibility: With less competition comes more opportunities for your home to stand out! Plus, your real estate agent will likely have more time to spend on your home’s marketing to get it in front of the right buyers. More serious buyers: Typically, buyers who are looking for a home in the winter are serious and want to move quickly. This can make the negotiation and closing process much easier!

Every month, you pay your mortgage. But do you know what you’re actually paying for? It’s not just your mortgage loan! Swipe to learn more about the different components that make up your monthly mortgage payment. Your loan payment is a combination of principal (the amount of money you borrowed from the lender) and interest (the money your lender charges for the principal). But in addition to those two items, your monthly mortgage payment ALSO pays your homeowner’s insurance, private mortgage insurance (if your down payment was under 20%), and your property taxes. Your lender will be able to give you a breakdown of your monthly payment so you can see just where your money is going each month. Remember, you might be able to change the cost of some of those items–particularly your homeowners insurance! Want more tips like this? Make sure to hit that follow button!
