The easiest way to buy a mortgage is from a credit union, simply because they offer competitive rates, good facilities, in-branch and 24/7 banking services, member benefits, etc. You can get lines of credit, a fixed-rate or adjustable-rate home loan, a first-time mortgage loan, a Visa credit card loan, personal loans, secured loans, and many other options.

Why don't you just hire a Realtor? That should be your first step.
