Sometimes buyers sabotage their own home closing by making easily avoidable mistakes. These are the top five money miss-steps that can jeopardize your purchase – and they are all within your personal control:

  1. New Loans

Interest Rates

Mortgage interest rates are slowly creeping up, and financial experts expect them to continue to rise over the course of 2018. Right now, rates continue to hover near historic lows. That means it is an optimal time to buy. Lower interest rates on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage will save you money now and in the future, as you watch your neighbors pay more for the same loan product.

Low Inventory

Metro Atlanta builders are trying to keep up with demand, but
