Let us be clear, you are doing the right thing,,,getting information. The way you start your process will look an awful lot like the way it will end. So...lets do it RIGHT!
First, let's get a buyer's guide in your hands to familiarize you with the process and some of the terminology in play. I have incredible, generic guide for you. There is also a buyers guide here on Trulia. I've read it . It's better than no guide at all.
Next, you need meet with a real estate professional. Have a discussion regarding your situation and your goals. The agent will then direct you to the next appropriate resource.
This may be to an investor who will finance the buyer, to a lender who provides mortgages matching your situation, to a lender who has a proven track record of closing on time and within budget. In some cases a bit of credit stableazation is needed and a local lender is a great resource.
Find an "A" or "B" graded lender near you at:
As you can see, your selection of real estate professional will have a significant influence on your experience and success. IF you are serious about making a home purchase, you need to call one of the agents in your area who has responded.
No, don't click that 'contact' link.
No, don't email.
Go old school, CALL, if you are serious.
Best of success to you.
