Hi Adonis,

Congrats on the decision to buy a home! The conventional first step is to get a prequalification letter, which basically provides an opinion on the home price and loan you can expect to qualify for. Lenders and brokers all will be able to get you prequalified without a problem. Use that opinion to hunt for a home while you start shopping around for mortgage loans.

Seeing as your just getting started, you might want to check out an online tool that helps you choose the right mortgage based on your needs and preferences.

It's optimized for first-time homebuyers who might not know where to start and need a little guidance along the way.

Here's how it works:

1. Answer a series of simple questions to determine your personal needs, preferences, and risk tolerance, and MortgageHippo will recommend the best mortgages that fit your profile.

2. Shop and compare recommended loan offers from lenders, completely anonymously.

3. Once you find a loan you like and want to proceed, you'll have access to your very own advanced closing plan, where you can see the whole process at a glance, keep track of your application, and sign off on key documents -- all with the help of a personal mortgage expert.

You can sign up for free and see personalized loan results in about 10 min. All you need is your email to get going.

If you're comfortable using online services like TurboTax and and looking to buy, check it out!

Full disclosure: I'm a product designer at MortgageHippo
