Purchasing a home is one of life’s biggest financial decisions and accomplishments, especially for first-time homebuyers. Before an individual, couple, or family starts house hunting and falls in love with a house well beyond their means, it’s important for them to sit down with a financial advisor to guide them.

Sierra Pacific Mortgage’s staff of mortgage advisors helps clients determine their budget and which type of mortgage works best for their financial situation. Prospective homebuyers can use this knowledge to steer their real estate agent to show them appropriate listings.
