Getting a mortgage can be stressful … bank statements, credit scores, interest rates, loan estimates, and closing disclosures can really put a dent in the excitement of buying a home. That’s why I’ve put together a list of dos and don’ts of the mortgage process, to help you cut through the noise and get back to the fun part!⁣

Make sure that you do NOT:⁣

• Buy a car ⁣
• Get married or divorced⁣
• Change professions or start your own business⁣
• Change bank accounts⁣
• Make any large purchases (appliances, furniture, etc.)⁣
• Throw away documents⁣
• Incur any late payments⁣
• Open or apply for any new credit cards⁣
• Overwhelm yourself by trying to understand everything on your own. Ask questions and lean on your agent and lender!⁣

Make sure that you DO:⁣

• Keep all accounts current, including mortgage, car loans, credit cards, etc. ⁣
• Contact your lender anytime a question may arise⁣
• Make all payments on or before due dates on all accounts, even if the  account is being paid off with your new loan⁣
• Return phone calls and emails promptly from your agent, loan officer, Settlement Company, or anyone else involved in your transaction ASAP!⁣

If you’re thinking about starting the pre-approval process, I’d be happy to recommend a few of my trusted lenders — just shoot me a message!⁣
