On Groundhog Day 2015 Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, foretelling 6 more weeks of winter for the nation. That's about 6 more weeks to stick to your resolution for an equally anticipated season – the spring homebuying season.
If you are seriously thinking about buying a house, there is still time to get prepared for the upcoming season by:
- Taking stock of your finances – including your credit history.
- Making a budget and figuring out how much you can afford by using online tools and talking to your lender.
- Exploring your mortgage options and getting the facts.
- Getting pre-approved for financing so you are ready to make an offer right away.
