How to begin the process
So the hubby and I know we will be ready come the end of our lease for a home. (We've been ready mentally since forever!!) We know what we want to spend and all that. As an accountant I need details! So my questions begin with that. How did you know how much tax and insurance would be? Did you refer to a realtor or anything? After that what was your next step? Getting preapproved? Loan process? Talking to realtor? I asked my mom but she hasn't done this in a while and just says to talk to a realtor but if we aren't all that close I don't want to bother them. Any advice ladies? How'd you start this stressful process that I want to jump in head first!!
