“We are pre-approved for WHAT?!?!” I will never forget nearly falling out of my chair when my husband (then boyfriend) and I went to get our mortgage pre-approval to buy our first home over a decade ago.

But as two finance majors, we had insights many first time home buyers do not. Understanding a few nuanced secrets to the home buying process based on my experience can help you be more confident in your purchase, and more certain that your first home mortgage is a successful fit for your family’s finances.
