Advice for consumers looking to purchase a home or refinance their mortgage; St. Louis mortgage interest rate update

Thinking of purchasing a home or refinancing a mortgage?  Here are some tips to help make the process smooth:

Know your current situation. Be aware of your credit history; your credit report may contain out of date, or inaccurate items. Carefully review your credit report and make a note of items that should be fixed. It takes time, but you can correct mistakes successfully with a written request to the individual credit bureaus. It is also a good idea to examine your monthly housing expenses to determine how comfortable you are with your budget without sacrificing important necessities.

Be sure to work with professionals and build a team (realtors, builders, mortgage bankers). This is an important exercise because professionals will work with your requirements and correlate that information to a proper sales price, loan amount and monthly payment. You may be surprised that you qualify for MORE on paper than what you thought about previously.   Communication is essential to any successful transaction
