First, check your credit score. It may not sound important to you but the credit score may be the most important factor when it comes to qualifying for a loan these days. Always get a credit report just in case the lender needs it. 

Know your budget. By  knowing your budget, you will have an idea on how much money should you spend in buying a house. It's easy to fall in love with the house and all its appearance. But always think if you can afford it. 

Get pre-approved for a mortgage. Most problems that buyers faces when buying a house is that they can’t find a bank to give them a mortgage. Getting pre-approved will help you avoid this problem by speaking to lenders. 

Find a good home inspector. Okay. So, you've already decided to buy the house and everything were set on the move. The next thing for you to do is to inspect it. We cannot just assume the quality and the condition of the house by just looking at it.  A knowledgeable home inspector is just as important as a great real estate agent and getting a house inspection can save you thousands of dollars.
