I'm often asked what is the first step to take when buying a home. Should I go look at homes first? Should I get pre-approved for my loan first? Great question!

No sense falling in love with a home that will make you house poor. Watch this video for more tips.
If you don't know any local lenders call me. I work with lenders all the time and I'm happy to share.
