Welcome to the first episode of our series on buying a home! Join me, Diane Brennan, as we walk through the steps in buying a home. Today Tom Ross and I will start walking you through what you need to do before you ever look at a home.

Why qualify before I start looking?

  • In Arizona you need to before you can make an offer.
  • Time matters in tight markets! Don't miss out on your house.
  • You want to look at homes that you can afford

Now that you know you need to qualify, give your lender, Tom Ross a call. Today Tom covers:

  • How much you need for a down payment. Is it still 20%?
  • What paper work you will need to have for your lender.
  • What your job history will have to do with your qualifying.
  • Credit checks and how pulling your score can affect your score.

And, after all of that, you won't believe the Zillow story I have for you!
