Hello Tiant,

That is a great question and you have already taken the first step. The first step to buying a home is to definitely figure out your finances. Spend time with a knowledgeable loan officer that will inform you of where you stand and what finance terms are out there for you. Figure out what you can afford and what will put you in the best financial position.

I would be happy to speak to you and go over your financial situation and the options you have to purchase your first home. I am a licensed loan officer for the State of Michigan with a national direct lender. We have access to any program available including FHA, VA, USDA, and Conventional home loans. Feel free to contact me at any time.

Hi, Tiant -- I agree with the previous posters. Get with a good, local lender (get some recommendations from your agent and talk to two or three of them) and have them give you a pre-approval letter. Then, once you know your comfort level for a mortgage, talk with your Realtor about your needs and wants in a new home. Make a list of the items that are most important to you and search for home that meet as many of those needs as possible. Best of luck!

Anna is correct, especially the way the market is these days. You have to have the pre approval letter to submit with your offer. You can speak to a lender at your bank to find out how much you qualify for. You will want to get an idea of what your monthly payment will be including an taxes an insurance. The you can look for homes in your price range.

Good luck

If purchasing with a mortgage, be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously, therefore visit with any licensed loan officer; also choose an agent to work with, he/she will best guide you...
