5 Habits to start now to buy a home next year


  1. Automate your down payment savings-Start by depositing a small sum from each paycheck into a separate savings account. If you don't see it you won't spend it.

  2. Build your credit history and keep it clean- To get a mortgage, you'll need to build a good credit history. Keep up with your bills and pay them on time.
