Century 21 M&M Real Estate Agents suggest that before you start looking to purchase a home, you should first contact a mortgage professional and get pre-approved. This process can actually take as little as 10 minutes of your time.
So gather together your tax forms, be ready with social security numbers, and know ahead of time how much money you can bring to the table to cover the down payment and closing costs.
