5 Tips to Buying that Perfect Home

  1. Start by determining what you want your monthly payments to be and get pre-approved.
  2. Come to a decision with your partner about your must-haves and target neighborhood. Then stick to the non-negotiables and be flexible on others.
  3. Start saving in advance so you’re prepared for any surprise costs – or that new couch that will be perfect for your new living room!
  4. Before you make an offer, drive by the prospective home at night. This will give you a better sense of the neighborhood – especially important if you have children.
  5. Work with a professional to determine the best offer and any counter offers.
