This guide will help you better understand the most important steps of the buying process and answer any questions you may have while preparing to buy.

We heard you were buying a home and we are so excited for you! We believe homeownership is important for so many reasons and we love to see people begin that journey.Ā  For many, the buying process starts with sifting through online listings, and while this is a fun way to get excited about the process, we are here to remind you that it’s important to learn about the not as fun stuff, like knowing what you can afford and how to make it happen.
