- Know your budget. If you understand your comfort zone then you won’t feel stretched too far at the end.
- Check your credit score. A healthy score can qualify you for a lower interest rate, the landlord of your prospective property will also more than likely check your credit score with a tenant credit check, depending on what your credit is looking like, they can offer you lower interest rates as well as also declining your application if your credit is too low.
- Set your priorities. Before taking a look at any houses, sit down and write out everything you want in a home. It can be as simple as a pros and cons list. Once you know exactly what you want, you’re ready to look for a house.
