    reviewing your finalized comprehensive budget detailing your income and
    expenses.

    Step 2:

    – Get Prequalified – When you are prequalified/pre-approved for a mortgage, a lender has looked closely at your credit reports, your employment history and your income — and must then determine which loan programs you qualify for, the maximum amount you can borrow and the interest rates you will be offered

    criteria of home you choose and schedule showings that compliment your
    schedule.

    Home Inspection – A home inspection is a professional consulting service that determines the present condition of the home’s major systems, based on a visual inspection of accessible features. It focuses on the performance of the home, rather than cosmetic, code or design issues. View the form “For Your Protection Get a Home Inspection”.
