Home Buying Timeline

Wondering what happens once you actually start the home buying process? I’m giving you a sneak peek at the first 4 steps! But maybe you’re wondering how you get to the starting point? This month is dedicated to you, friend! I am enrolling people into the “future” homeowner club, to set them up on a successful path to homeownership! You’ll learn the steps you need to take to buy your first home in one year (or sooner)! If you want to get on the list, text me at 262.365.9111.

Step One: Check your credit score

Get a copy of your credit report. The 3 credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion) are required to give you a free credit report every year. You want to not only learn what your credit score is, but make sure there aren't any errors that need to be disputed.

Step Two: Figure out your home buying budget

This is important to do at the beginning so that you can create a savings plan for a down payment and other home buying expenses.

Step Three: Get your finances in order

Whether you need to raise your credit score or create a down payment savings plan, you'll want to figure this all out about a year in advance from when you're wanting to buy your first house.

Step Four: Research different loan programs

MYTH: YOU NEED 20% DOWN TO BUY A HOME - You can actually put down as low as 3.5% (sometimes even less). Talk to a lender and do some research to figure out what options you have. Homeownership may be closer than you think. Need some lender suggestions? I have a fantastic list of tried and true lenders who will make things a lot easier!
