Understanding the home buying process can be a challenging experience for a first time homebuyer. Purchasing a home is one of the most valuable investments a family will ever make. However, being more informed prior to making that purchase typically eases the home buying experience and ultimately strengthens the borrower’s ability to obtain and maintain their American dream of homeownership.
