Find ways to improve your credit score
Always be aware of what is happening with your credit score rating. This has a significant impact on the interest and rate of your loan. Approximately one third of your credit score is decided by your your history of making payments on time. So do everything you can to make sure that this happens, especially in the months leading up and to and through the home loan process.

How big of a home can you afford?
Your monthly loan payment ought to usually be about one third of your monthly income. Also, you’ll want to keep in mind if your income varies from month to month or is seasonal. You may want to be more conservative in how much of a home that you can buy if your income isn’t stable. You don’t want to be struggling every month because the payment is beyond your means if you income drops later on.
Keep in mind the term of the loan
Most loan mortgages provided by primary creditors around the world is 30 years. Don’t be lured into a decreased monthly payment for a longer term mortgage in order if a payment with a shorter duration is feasible. You’ll end up paying a ton more over the long run in interest for a longer term loan.
