The following are 3 tips that we would like to highlight from Realtor.com’s article: 5 Habits to Start now if you Hope to buy a Home in 2017:


Make Saving Automatic - Saving for a down payment is the first, and hardest, step to getting into your dream home. Make this simpler by setting your bank account to automatically start saving a chunk of money from each paycheck into a separate ‘house fund’ account. “If you never see the cash, you won’t spend it.”


Build Credit and Keep it Clean - If you use no more than 30% of the credit available to you, this will beef up your credit score. When you apply for a mortgage, lenders love to see that you can pay off your debts.


Practice Budgeting - Buying something expensive is all about sacrifice in other areas of your life. Sacrifice money for clothes, cars, and traveling to ensure that you will have a better spending habit for your future home buying!
