Buying Real Estate in Austin, Texas

Buying a home, whether it’s your first or your 15th can be one of the most important purchases of your life. There are many steps to complete before embarking on the homebuying journey. You’re not just buying a home, you’re making an investment in your future. It is important to work with an agent who will be there with you every step of the way to ensure it’s done right.

Getting Ready:

Organizing your finances

  • Check credit scores – you can do this on your own or through a lender when you begin the prequalification process
  • Make a household budget – income vs. bills/debt
  • Begin gathering documents – i.e. last three years of income tax returns, bank statements, current copies of pay stubs, etc
  • Debt payoff – make sure everything is in order, try and pay off any existing debt and don’t accrue any new debt
  • Get prequalified – Getting prequalified or preapproved for a loan before you begin your search for a home allows you to know what price range to stay in and makes the loan process that much easier once you have found the perfect home and go under contract
