When preparing to buy a home, the first thing you should do is focus on exactly what you're looking for. Start by establishing your priorities in these three areas:
- Location: Consider the schools, shops, parks, amenities, and things that are priorities for you when choosing where you want to live.
- Personal tastes: Although comprises may need to be made, think about the style homes you prefer, how much space you need, and how a home will best fit your unique lifestyle.
- Budget: It's important to know how much you will spend, and how much your monthly payments will be. The best place to start is to get Pre-Approved for a mortgage. The pre-approval process will answer all your questions about the cost of owning.
Contacting an agent early in the process is important as your agent can answer your questions about Chicago's communities and suburbs, the home buying process, and put you in contact with a reputable lender who can get your pre-approval done.
