HPAL Tip of the Week:
When buying a home, aim for one you can actually afford.
Determine how much home you can afford, then secure a firm preapproval for financing before you start seriously house shopping. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment by falling in love with a house you can’t afford. Plus, sellers will find your offer more attractive if they know you can back it up and close the deal.
You are encouraged to use these weekly tips on your website, social media pages or in other communication with your members to illustrate one more way credit unions help people afford life.
