Tips for Moving Forward

First, make sure you’ve covered the standard home-buying basics. When you’re ready to purchase a condo, your lender can help you with the process and help you select the mortgage financing option that is best for you. If you have credit or other issues that need to be addressed before you can buy, ask your lender to refer you to a HUD-approved housing counselor.

When you’re ready, your lender can help you with the process.

Be proactive. Prepare your own checklist about the home style, services, and amenities that are important to you, and then visit a variety of condos to find one that fits your lifestyle.
