Before you sign on the dotted line, make sure you’ve done your research and know the lay of the land.
Buying a car or a home is a big decision, and having a little knowledge under your belt will help you make smart choices. Before you head out to buy, get familiar with the process of purchasing a home or a car, understand your options, and get connected with experts you can trust.
The Home buying process
The more you know about the process of finding, buying and financing a home, the more confident you’ll be as you face the key decisions involved.
The car buying process
Buying a car that will keep you on the road for the long haul means doing some research, taking your time, and negotiating for a fair price.

Buying a house
Buying a house is a big decision, and we want to empower you to find an affordable house you can truly call home. Knowledge is power, so we suggest you take some time to read through the resources we’ve gathered here. Understand the process, the choices you will be asked to make, and how much you can afford to spend on a home.
The basic process for buying a home:
- Decide how much you can afford
- Decide on a loan
- Apply for pre-qualification or pre-approval. (Getting pre-qualified is more of a guide of what you can afford, while a pre-approval means you’ve started the loan application process and a lender has pre-approved your capability to get a loan.)
- Find your home
- Make an offer
- Go through inspections
- Closing process
Buying a car
Getting ready to buy a car? You’ll have some choices to make. What kind of financing should you get? New or used car? Buy or lease? We’ve gathered some helpful resources here to help you navigate those decisions so you end up with a reliable car that you can afford.
Speaking of how much you can afford, as you start looking at available cars remember the general rule of thumb: your total transportation costs shouldn’t exceed 20-25% of your total monthly expenses.
