The First Steps: Buying a Home in Southeast Texas

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!  There's no wrong answer but I think it is most helpful to talk to a lender and find out what a comfortable monthly payment for you will be.  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.
