I am in the process of purchasing my first house. My husband and I have been working diligently to get out of all credit card debt, and this will happen in the next couple months. (Yay!)
This leads us to searching for our new home. We received our pre-approval and have worked our finances to find a mortgage price we can be comfortable paying. Since I work full time, it was easy to get approved at a terrific rate. After researching, it seems that getting approved as a freelancer tends to be more difficult because of having a more difficult time proving the paychecks will keep coming. This has moved me to want to get a home purchased soon as I am transitioning to work more freelancer and possible part time at my current position.
If you freelance and have purchased a home, please comment below about your experience.
