We've helped many brides and grooms buy a house.

The Timeline

your wedding day

Find a dress

This can take some time. Make sure you have at least 6 months before it expires from the date you are to return from your honeymoon, if not you will need to renew it.

Get preapproved 

If your plans are to buy a home before you're married, it's time to call your Realtor (us) so we can get you in touch with our preferred lenders to help make sure your finances are in order.

Watch your credit report 

Setting a budget is very important and doing your best to stick to it is vital so you don't rack up your credit cards. If trying to buy a home while planning a wedding, this is something you will need to stay on top of so you don't lose out on a home you truly love. Working with your agent (us) and your lender as a team will help make this a successful and fun new chapter in your lives.
