Buying a home can be exciting, emotional, and scary all at the same time. Although it is tempting to dive into the MLS (Multi Listing Service) to look for homes, there is a step that comes before looking for a home, financing. There is nothing worse than finding the home you love with an agent, spending time energy, and emotion, and finding out you are not able to finance it.

Sure, looking for homes with the right expectation before having your finances in line is a great idea. In fact, you can even search here and get notifications of homes that match what you are looking for as soon as they hit the market.

This step of financing is one that can seem daunting, scary, or beyond what you are comfortable with, but thankfully there are experts that are licensed by the state to help you walk through this.


Hailey, from Collins Credit Union, is a licensed loan officer and is more than happy to help you walk through the first crucial step in the home buying process.

If you have any more questions about how the process works feel free to reach out with any questions and I am happy to help.
