If you’re planning on buying a home in the near future, you want to start taking steps today to make that dream a reality. But what, exactly, are those steps?
First, contact a lender or two so they can help you figure out how far you are from your goal.
And these small steps are always helpful, whether you want to buy a home, a car, or anything else that doesn’t fit into your regular budget:
1) Cut expenses. The more you can save for a down payment the better! Look for ways to cut expenses a bit (such as a morning latte or brown bagging your lunch an extra day each week)
2) Create a dedicated savings account for your down payment and set up an automatic transfer every week, even if it’s just $10-$20. This can help you plan for the future, and add up quickly!
