If you’re thinking of buying a home in the next year, I have a few ideas for you to think about during the holidays and heading into the new year so you are prepared and ready.
1. Know what’s going on with your credit. You need to know all three of your scores and what you need to do to increase them if need be. The best score will get you the best rate. One piece of advice is to not open any new lines of credit.
2. Save those gift funds. Some people I know are expecting money coming from their family for the holidays. Plan on stashing that cash away so you have some more money for a down payment.
“It’s never too early to start saving for a down payment.”
3. Plan to save your tax return money. If you can, it will help you save up for that down payment even more.
There are a lot of steps to buying or selling a home. The one step to remember is to give me a call or send me an email, and I’ll help you through the rest. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
