If you are just starting to think about purchasing a home you might want to know more about loans and the process so when you talk to a loan officer you will have a better understanding about each type of loan.  You need to get pre approved for a loan before you start looking for a home.

If you are a veteran and want to know more about VA loans and the process you can get some good information.

Check out current interest rates.  The interest you will receive depends on your credit score so it is a good thing to work on your score and bring it up as much as you can.  Your loan officer will give you some good ideas on how to do that.

There are programs that might assist you with your down payment.  It is worth your time to see if you qualify for anything.  Especially if you are a policeman, firefighter or teacher.

Thinking about selling your home?  It is still a great time to be a seller.  We can do a market analysis on your home and let you know the current value. A net proceeds will be provided to you that gives you an estimate of costs to sell your home so you know what you might have to work with in purchasing another home.  We will update this when an offer comes in and we know all the terms of the offer so you can make a good decision.
