One of the biggest things that affects your ability to get a home mortgage is your credit score.  Lenders use that score
to determine whether they will lend you money or not.  Lenders also use that score to determine the interest rate they
will charge you.

There are a lot of companies on the web offering up free credit scores but many of these are not used by the
Lender Institutions and you need to be careful who you trust with your personal information. Make sure to get
your credit score from same sources that your lender will use, FICO, Plus Score from Experian, Trans Risk Score from TransUnion, Equifax Credit Score from Equifax and/or Vantage Score.

to take over the pursuit.

There is a lot of debate about whether to buy a home or rent one.  No matter
how you look at this issue it always makes sense to own verse rent. 
The only exception is if you are only planning to live in the area for
two years or less.

In Trulia's 2014 Rent vs. Buy Report, they explained that homeownership
remains cheaper than renting throughout the 100 largest metro areas in the
United States; ranging from an average of 5% in Honolulu, all the way to
66% in Detroit, and 38% Nationwide!

If you look at the Trulia report you will see that home maintenance is
included in the comparison.  The fundamentals of the report show that the
monthly cost of a mortgage is lower than that of rent, rent increases
faster than inflation while mortgage costs remain the same for the
duration of a loan (fixed rate loan) and home owners get tax breaks which
reduce the cost of owning.

The housing market is changing and it is expected that interest rates and
home prices will continue to rise throughout the foreseeable future which
might someday make renting a better choice.  But for today, it's better to
own than rent.
