The Ten Commandments of Buying a Home

March 18th, 2014 7:05 PM by Christopher Terry


  1. Thou shall not change jobs, become self employed, or quit!
  2. Thou shall not buy a car before buying a home! (Or you may be living in it!)
  3. Thou shall not use credit cards excessively or make payments late.
  4. Thou shall not spend money that you are saving and set aside for closing.
  5. Thou shall not omit debts or liabilities on your loan application.
  6. Thou shall not purchase furniture or appliances before closing.
  7. Thou shall not incur credit inquires after applying for a mortgage.
  8. Thou shall not make any large deposits without checking with your loan officer first.
  9. Thou shall not change bank accounts.
  10. Thou shall not co-sign for anyone.

With tight credit standards these "commandments" could make all the difference in the process of becoming a homeowner.
