FHA Loan for Homeowners

Take the Steps to Get Your Mortgage

Purchasing a home is one of life's major landmarks and for some, it is even a dream come true. At FHA.com we understand the magnitude of this decision and it is our goal to make your transition into home ownership unforgettable. Regardless of whether this is your first or your fifth home purchase we will do our best to ensure that getting you into your new home is a pleasant and memorable experience.

FIRST STEPS

When you begin to seriously consider purchasing a new home it is important that you follow some simple steps to make sure that the process runs smoothly.

The first thing you should do is an analysis of your debt to income ratio. This important step will let you know what type of home you can afford based on your monthly income and expenses.

The next important step in purchasing a new home is to get pre-approved for a home loan. The peace of mind that comes with knowing that your mortgage loan and credit report have been approved will allow you to shop for your new home with confidence. And when you find a home and are ready to make an offer the fact that you have already been pre-approved for your loan amount will give the seller confidence in you as a buyer.
