Tips first-time buyers wish they had known

Save for extra costs.

If the seller doesn’t pick up the closing cost, you could pay between 2% and 5% of the total mortgage value. There are also appraisals and inspections, so anticipating extra costs can help you save enough to cover them.

Your credit score counts.

You may improve your credit score by keeping your balances low—a general guideline is to stay below 30% of your total available credit.

Find the right price range.

Calculate your debt-to-income ratio to understand your ideal price range. Like your credit score, debt-to-income is a key factor lenders consider when evaluating your loan application.

Think about life after you buy.

Set aside 1% to 2% of the purchase price of your home every year for routine maintenance projects— from chimney cleaning to roof inspections.
