Dear lalaquinonez01,

The first thing you need to do is sit down with a lender that you feel comfortable with. Start of with a local lender or ask your work colleagues, family members or friends for recommendations. You need to see if you are mortgage eligible and determine your affordability. Once you've done and all is well in that regards, meet with a realtor (you might find one on this forum) and see where that translates to in terms of location and the amount of home available to you.

All the best,

No need to be afraid about buying a home of your own!!!!!

You must make sure you have a diligent buyer's agent working on your behalf.

You will need to be pre- approved by a DIRECT lender.

Once you hire the right agent and get your loan pre approved, you will be ok.
Your agent should be the one making sure you have nothing to be afraid of.

Buying a home is a big step, but look at it this way.If you pay rent you have already been paying a mortgage, it is just that you have been paying the mortgage of your landlord!

Much Success to You, I hope you are in your new home soon!

Best Regards,

Lalaquinonez01. If you are looking for a house that will has a good area to play for you and the kids, you mean to say a house that has a backyard or that is near parks? I travel from Moreno Valley all the way to Malibu and let me tell you that the price of a house in Los Angeles City would get you a bigger house in Riverside. Are you interested in a house in Compton only?

Give me a call at 323 906 6135, Manuel Ugalde Ultrera.

Buying a house is not like buying a food at the food market where you can return the goods for your money back. It can be like going to a restaurant where you order what you want to eat and after is prepared you must be ready to pay. As a matter of fact, when you go to the restaurant you know you can pay period. So, in buying a home make sure you are able to pay, if there is a bill so ask for the bill and taxes just in casa.
