Looking for a new home? Rates are still low, so it's a great time to buy but there are some things you should consider before taking the plunge.

First, KNOW YOUR CREDIT SCORE! You could have a great down payment and low debt to income ratio, but if your credit score is too low you won't qualify for a loan.

Next, evaluate if you're really ready to be a homeowner. Buying a home should be looked upon as a long-term investment. It's important to consider the upkeep and maintenance costs associated with buying a home. Owning a home can also take up a lot of your free time.

Maybe you don't want to buy, but are considering a remodeling project. This is a great idea and City Credit Union has a great Home Equity rate of 4.99% APR!

Home ownership is the American Dream. Take some time to plan before you buy so that you can be a smart consumer. The Home Zone expert at City Credit Union is ready and willing to help.
