The Top 5 Tips to Get Yourself a Mortgage in 2014

1.  Document everything-keep all of your tax records, and be prepared to explain your finances thoroughly. 

2.  Shop around-Shop around for your loan, and see who is offering the best deal.

3.  Consider more than you credit-Lenders are also concerned with your debt-to-income ratio as well, so it’s important you are looking for homes that won’t put a strain on your budget

4.  Consider traditional mortgages first-So, if you can get approved for a traditional mortgage, it’s typically the better way to go.

5.  Don’t jump the gun -f buying was already in your plans, then you may want to try and lock in a rate soon. However, if you are on the fence about buying a new home, don’t rush out and do it just because the rates may rise.
