Buying sooner than later and I have no idea what I'm doing!My boyfriend and I were considering buying a house next summer but we have found a house that has peaked out interest now. There was a paper posted in the window saying something about it being a HUD home. Now I know that means its a foreclosure, but it's not listed on the HUD website. Not sure what that's about. We want to look at the property closer but arent sure if we should call the listing agent since this is the only property we're looking at right now, or go ahead and call a buyers agent. Because the property is a foreclosure and needs some work, I know we need to be sure to have it all thoroughly inspected to be sure we know what we're buying. Also, we havent even looked into getting preapproved for financing. So: 1) call a buyers agent to get a look at the house or call the listing agent? and 2) should we look into financing before we look at the house or should we look at the house and see if it's worth looking into the financing now? and 3) if we look into financing now and end up not wanting or getting this house will we have to try for financing again in the summer or will what we have still be good? and if we have to look for financing twice how will that effect our credit?
