Knowing in advance how to get a mortgage is an essential first step in the home buying process. First Bank Mortgage is a trusted and experienced mortgage lender and can easily assist you throughout the process. Before you decide to purchase your first home, carefully assess your own financial situation. Whether you’re married or single, you'll need to determine where you stand financially. For instance, do you know your credit score? What are your current balances on unsecured personal loans, like credit cards and student loans? First Bank Mortgage does offer several programs for first-time homebuyers needing little money down; however, strive to have cash on hand, or in reserves, to utilize for any potential down payment, utilities, moving expenses, new home furnishings, or unforeseen emergencies. To help guide you through the home loan process, contact a First Bank Mortgage Home Loan Advisor. One of our friendly team members can help you determine the type of mortgage and loan amount that’s comfortable for you, based on your individual financial position.
