Wondering how the process has changed, or how to get started? Myself and my Real Estate Team will be hosting a Home Buying Seminar at the Farmington Civic Center this week and will continue to do so several times throughout the year. Some of the topics that will be discussed are:

Some of the questions you should answer for yourself when you are thinking about starting the buying process are:

Determine your motivation.

Each one can have certain stipulations that will cause a home to not be eligible for that particular loan, your Lending Officer and Realtor will work together to help you find a property that will.

Do you need to sell your current home before you purchase a new one?
