Buying a home involves multiple variables, but you don't need to feel overwhelmed. Just do your homework and follow some proven advice to find a new home that fits your finances.

  • Clearly define what you want in your new home (location and features) and what you can afford
  • Get pre-approved for a Firefly CU mortgage to know your borrowing limits
  • Compare Mortgage options to determine which is best for your budget and goals
  • Research available homes online or through a licensed agent
  • Schedule an inspection of the home you want to purchase to avoid any unwanted, expensive surprises in the future
  • Factor in closing costs and fees, along with insurance, utilities, taxes and other expenses to determine the true cost
  • Firefly CU members receive a special homeowners insurance rate from Liberty Mutual.
  • Consider that your taxes will be affected when you buy or sell a home and consult your tax advisor for specific information
