If you're financing the home, make sure you know how much home you can afford. There is nothing more disappointing than finding a home you love only to discover you can't afford it. Know ahead of time what your budget is and there won't be any need for that disappointment. Discuss your options with a lender you trust and get a good, solid figure of how much you can really afford. The lender should offer you a letter of pre-approval to submit with your offer to show the sellers you are serious about buying and have already completed the preliminary financial homework.
