Get Your Finances in Order

You will need to have money put aside for a down payment. This amount at the very minimum is 5% of the purchase price of the home you’re planning to buy. Then, you’ll need to meet with a mortgage specialist to determine what you can afford. Shopping around for the best rate is highly recommended.
