First-Time Home Buyer Mistake:

Not knowing the limits of a home inspection.

Attend the inspections and pay close attention. Don’t be afraid to ask the inspector to take a look or a closer look at something.

First-Time Home Buyer Mistake:

Passing up the chance to negotiate.

A lot can be negotiated in the home buying process, which can result in major savings. Talk with your Loan Originator/Officer.

First-Time Home Buyer Mistake:

Buying a home for today and not tomorrow.

It’s easy to meet your current needs, but what about your future needs? Consider expansion that can be grown into.

First-Time Home Buyer Mistake:

Not saving enough for after move-in expenses!

After down payment and closing costs, you will still need furnishings, appliances, rugs, and etc.

Research state and local assistance programs. Many states offer these for first time home buyers with perks such as down payment assistance, closing cost assistance, tax credits, and discounted interest rates.

Never be afraid to explore your down payment and mortgage options. Ask questions!

Home Buying Tip Of The Day:

Save for a down payment

The cost of a down payment plus the closing cost is no pocket change that’s just sitting around. Plan accordingly and save ahead of time so that you’re not caught by surprise.

Home Buying Tip Of The Day:

Avoid changing jobs…

Lenders look very closely at your employment history. Changing jobs midway through makes you appear unstable. Lenders want to make sure that you have a stable source of income.

Credit scores don’t heal themselves over time.

Pay off your debts
Keep balances low on credit cards
Properly manage other forms of credit

Watch your credit score increase!

Only apply for credit when NEEDED!

Don’t open accounts simply for the sake of a better credit mix because it probably won’t help your score.

Your credit can be harmed in two way: (1) Creating hard inquiries on your credit report. (2) Tempting you to overspend

Top credit tip of all time…


It’s the simplest tip yet the most common mistake. Lenders are extremely interested in how reliably you pay your bills.

Your past payment performance is a pretty accurate indicator for your future performance.

Credit can be a tricky topic for some to understand. More so, how to increase their score or maintain good credit. Here’s a quick post to breakdown how scores are calculated.

You have three credit reports that collectively help determine your capacity and responsibility.

The model for all three reports are really similar. They take into account your payment history on loans and credit cards, how much credit you regularly use, how long your credit accounts have been open, the types of accounts you have, and how often you apply for new credit.
