The first step is so important these days!
Before you start looking at properties, contact a lender to get an idea as to how much you'll qualify for, and how much money down you'll need. The days of 0 down are long gone, so plan on putting at least 3-5% down, if not 10-20%, depending on credit, etc. Start saving now! There are many great deals to be had, but you will need money down. There are a few special programs out there, depending on what you do for a living (see older posts below) that may save you a few $$! When you've gotten this important first step taken care of, contact me at realtor4columbus at yahoo dot com, and I'll help you find that perfect property!
