For many of us, it feels like the world has been put on pause. While we all stay home, doing our part to slow the spread of Covid-19, many have also put their plans of homeownership on pause. The real estate market, though, is still open for business. Even if you have decided to wait, there are steps you can take to keep your dreams of owning a home alive and well.
- Get Pre-Approved – Contact a lender to complete the early paperwork (all online) that will instantly make you a more qualified buyer when you are ready to look for a home in earnest.
- Maintain Your Financial Health – Don’t let current circumstances ruin your credit. There are many resources available today, including the recently signed CARES Act, to help you through this crisis.
