Some of the most common mistakes that home buyers make during their mortgage process include:
Not being prepared to make a down payment. It's important to know how much you're going to have to pay up front, as well as how much you'll be able to afford in monthly payments. If you don't know where the money will come from, then it's unlikely that you'll be able to buy a house at all.
Not understanding what kind of loan works best for them. There are different kinds of loans out there, and each one has its own set of benefits and drawbacks. Depending on your financial situation and lifestyle needs, some loans may be more appropriate than others for your needs.
Being unaware of their credit score. Your credit score is an important piece of information when buying a home because lenders use it to determine whether or not they will give you a loan and how much interest rate they'll charge you based on it. Knowing your credit score can help ensure that you get approved for a loan despite having lower income than other applicants who might also want the same property or neighborhood."
