If you're thinking about buying a home, applying for a mortgage before starting your search is a smart move. Here are five reasons why:
First, it helps you understand how much you can afford. Second, it shows sellers that you're serious and can afford their home. Third, it can speed up the buying process. Fourth, it gives you an edge in a competitive market. And fifth, it can save you time and disappointment by preventing you from falling in love with a home that's out of your price range. Trust me, applying for a mortgage first is the way to go.
