Punxsutawney Phil's Prediction

Punxsutawney Phil’s Prediction - Spring Homebuying Season

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:

  1. Taking stock of your finances – including your credit history.
  2. Making a budget and figuring out how much you can afford by using online tools and talking to your lender.
  3. Exploring your mortgage options and getting the facts.
  4. Getting pre-approved for financing so you are ready to make an offer right away.
