So today I called this number to find out what I need to buy a house.
Turns out I might not need much. Here are my steps as of now.
1. look up my credit score.
2. find out if I can qualify for government loans for first time home buyers.
3. find out about loans regarding moving the market etc.
4. Determine how much I should have saved(how much I can afford), and save that much…
5. Look at houses.
Right now I have some problems. The biggest issue is that I need to have a secure job. I need to know that my final placement will be here in Folsom. The next issue is time frame. Our lease is up at the end of July, I won’t know if I will have a secure job by then, and I won’t know if I will be able to move that fast. So that brings into the situation should we extend our current lease short term and pay $200 a month more to do so? Also my roommate is moving out beginning of july, so if we do extend our lease, we need to find a new roommate, otherwise rent will be $850…The last issue I have is the fact that I don’t know where Katie is going to be in a year, or if she will move out to me. If she doesn’t that would be really hard.
