Finding Your Team
Housing counselors are valuable professionals to consider when you begin the homebuying process. They’ll help you assess your financial situation, budget appropriately, and be well prepared for successful homeownership.
Your real estate agent likely will be the first person you’ll meet on “your homeownership team.” They play a very important role – helping you find the right home at the right price – and will likely be with you every step of the way during your homebuying process.
Your lender is an equally important part of your team, helping you determine if you qualify for a loan and, if so, how much they are willing to lend you. It’s important to find a lender that you trust and who offers competitive rates and terms.
