6 Tips For Financing Your First Home: 

House icon orange with #1Ask Your Home Loan Expert Questions
No one is expecting you to be a pro your first time around. Ask questions frequently and lean on your team of experts for valuable advice and insight. Some great questions to get you thinking could be: What type of loans do I qualify for? How much down payment do I need? When do I need to get pre-qualified? How long does the loan process take? What programs or assistance are available specifically for first-time homebuyers?

House icon orange with #2Monitor Your Credit
Be sure not to take out any additional loans, open or close lines of cards, or take any actions (such as making late bill payments) that could impact your credit score. Your credit will be closely examined for consistency during this time so it’s best to hold off on any dramatic changes that could leave your report questionable.

House icon orange with #3Stick To Your Budget
Determining and sticking to a budget is pivotal for a successful homebuying and financing experience. Your trusted team of experts can help you calculate how much you can afford to ensure that your monthly payments are manageable. While it can be easy to compromise during some portions of the homebuying process, you should always remain true to your budget. When your finances and goals change over time, you and your Home Loan Experts can make the right adjustments to keep you on track.

House icon orange with #4Follow The Papertrail
While maintaining organized digital records is a great practice, keeping and securing physical paper copies of all important loan-related docs can save you hassle later in life. While modern technology is incredible, it can still be unreliable. Keeping your paperwork safe and organized in a locked, fireproof place will ensure that your records are always accessible whenever you need them in the future.

House icon orange with #5Take Advantage Of Benefit Programs
Be sure to ask your Home Loan Experts about AmeriHome’s benefit programs that have been specially designed to help you through your future financing journey. You may be able to secure additional savings, guidance, and resources to help you maximize your mortgage. Our team is always happy to guide you through your options to find the perfect solutions and benefits for your home lending needs.

House icon orange with #6Choosing The Right Realtor
Now that you’re pre-approved, start assembling the rest of your home buying dream team. A good realtor will listen and understand your needs and work diligently to find exactly what you’re looking for. Traits to keep your eyes out for when selecting your realtor are experience, familiarity with your desired area, and exceptional reviews that support their work. When in doubt, be sure to check the local Board of Realtors® or the National Association of Realtors® for any reported ethical violations.
