5 Tips for Buying A Home
Here are some tips to help you get the process started.
- Set a budget: Visit WhiteEagleCU.com and use our easy mortgage calculator to check what a monthly house payment would be, based on a certain loan amount. This will help you determine a price range.
- Save for a down payment: When you begin thinking about buying a home, start saving for a down payment and closing fees. A down payment will help lower your house payment.
- Credit Score: Conventional mortgage lending requires four lines of credit history with at least one year of payment history per credit-line. A higher credit score equals lower interest rates and smaller down payment.
- Get pre-approved. Pre-approval is easy…fill out our application online. If you are approved, a pre-approval letter is available for you to print and lets your realtor know your are approved and have the process started with your mortgage lender.
- Pre-approval status: Your pre-approval status is available up to four months. After four months you will need to prequalify.
- DO NOT open new lines of credit: Once you have a pre-approval and/or purchase contract, refrain from opening a new line of credit. It could cause your debt-to-income ratios to increase and make your loan ineligible.
