It's important to stick to the strategy you and your agent have agreed upon -- showing the seller how strong your offer is. First, get preapproved for a mortgage loan. T
That place next door just went up for sale. Your neighbors have lived there since the fifties, and they’re moving to Florida to be closer to the grandkids. They paid off their mortgage years ago, and they’re selling for a song, because they don’t want to wait too long for a buyer. (Those grandkids aren’t getting any younger!) It would be so easy, you think, to buy it and rent it out. You could pick your own neighbors! And have an investment property that, you hope, will appre

Here’s what you should know before deciding just how low you can go. Are you in a buyer's or seller's market? Ask your real estate agent to explain the market co

Buying a home can be overwhelming. But if you break it down in to smaller bites and take it one step at a time, it becomes much more manageable. Here's how to get started. Make a plan: Decide how long you plan on staying in your home. That will help you decide how large a home you should buy (think about needed room for any kiddos you might have a few years down the road), what neighborhood you might be interested in, and if you even want to buy a home at all. Check your cred
If you want to take out a mortgage or another type of loan, your credit score can play a big part in what interest rate you get, how much money you get to borrow, and whether you're approved at all. But there are some things a credit score can't do. Well, there are a lot of things. But you knew it couldn't wash your car, give you a haircut, or get you pregnant, right? Right.
