  • Familiarize yourself with your personal finances.
  • Learn about the Montgomery, Bucks, Chester, Delaware & Philadelphia County real estate market.
  • Carefully review your budget and begin to eliminate as much debt as possible.
  • Have a down payment and earnest money ready when the time comes to act and make your offer.

Q - Where do I go to get a loan and which loan type is best?

A - There are a variety of lenders and loan products available to help you.  We can recommend several trusted lending professionals or you can choose your own.  Having upmost confidence in your lender is important. Be sure you feel completely at ease with them.  They should speak to you in easy to understand terms.  Ask lots of questions and never sign any document until you know what you are signing and feel completely at ease signing it. The type of loan best for you depends on several factors. Here are just a few:

  • How much money do you have for a down payment?
  • How long do you plan to live in the home?
