Spring has sprung, which means the housing market is in full bloom. Each year, roughly40 percent of real estate transactionsoccur between the months of May and August. If you're feeling inspired to buy or sell a home soon, make sure you're prepared. Use these checklists to catch anything you may have missed.
When You're Ready to Buy a Home Purchasing a house is one of the biggest transactions you'll ever make. Whether it's your first time or the fifth, tackle the following prep work:
Calculate what you can afford. Use a home affordability calculator to make sure you're ready for the mortgage payments.
Check your credit score, and fix any inaccuracies you discover ASAP. Errors can impact your ability to get a good interest rate.
Save up for a down payment. Most lenders require 5 to 20 percent, and larger down payments can lower the amount you pay each month.
