I understand some people are nervous about their credit, but this is the first step towards the home buying process, but this is the first step towards the home buying process. Good credit is the number one way to get into your house, unless you have cash. By getting your credit checked it allows you to know where you stand. You may have a collection that you weren’t aware of, or you may need to get your points up a little more, or you may have additional documentation that you need to turn in, and there may be something on your credit that you didn’t tell the real estate agent about (me).
If you’re interested in buying a home go ahead and get pre-qualified even if you don’t think you’re going to purchase until 6-12mo from now, that’s fine too. This will allow you to work out any issues that may pop up later.
