1. Get prepared

Buying a home is a big commitment and you’ll want your finances to be in good condition before you start the process to ensure the best possible outcome. Gather your financial information, like recent tax returns, financial statements and pay stubs; your loan application will let you know what financial information is necessary. You should also review your credit score, take a look at your debt-to-income ratio (DTI) and take other important steps to position yourself for receiving the best possible loan terms. Click the button below to read our document on “Maintaining Your Financial Status and Credit Score” for tips to help guide you through the process.

2. Decide what you can afford

Before you begin shopping for a home, take a look at your budget and current expenses to determine what you can afford. You’ll want to evaluate your monthly incoming and outgoing funds to see where a down payment, closing costs and your new mortgage payment might fit in.

3. Get pre-approved

Once you know how much home you can afford, complete the application for a pre-approval letter. The pre-approval will let sellers know that you are a qualified buyer who is prepared to make a home purchase.


4. Find your home

Now’s the time to determine all the traits that make up your perfect home. Research areas and neighborhoods of interest. Also, connect with an RBFCU preferred real estate agent, who can help you search smarter.

5. Complete paperwork

You’ll complete the application process you started with your pre-approval request by submitting your documents and continuing through the loan process. This may sound simple, but it can be a big undertaking, depending on your employment status, residency, etc.

Flexibility now, and in the future

If you plan to move or refinance in a few years, an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) could be the best option for you.
