Thinking about buying a home in 2018? If you are, now is the time to start preparing. Here are the things you need to do first:

1. Check your credit score.

2. Avoid opening any new credit cards or making any big credit purchases. You could increase the total price you’ll pay for your home in the long run.

“Rates might increase more than once.”

3. Keep tabs on interest rates. The FED is expected to raise interest rates this year. They might do it more than once.

4. Find a mortgage lender and get pre-approved. This will save you time in the long run.
