Hi all! FH and I are hoping to purchase our very own house around the end of this year/beginning of next year. Any tips from those who are experienced in this? When should we start seriously looking at homes? We've gone on a few tours and open houses, but haven't done much more than that. Also, what should we have in order before contacting our credit union?
I feel confident we can get a good rate (my credit score is 745, his is 710; and we have quite a bit of money saved up), but any advice is welcome to help us accomplish that. Hoping to approach a realtor soon for advice, as well!
