About a month ago, I bought a new house! This is the second home I’ve owned, but the new house is my first time owning a single-family home not connected to any other units. I feel so grown up!
I could not have bought such a great home without a mortgage, similar to many other young professionals. As a guy who used to approve mortgage loans and having gone through the process three times myself, I want to share the secrets that bankers don’t tell you about when applying for a mortgage yourself.
