If you’re looking to buy a home, there is a great new resource out just in time for spring home-buying season.

The guide, which is part of the CFPB’s “Know Before You Owe” mortgage initiative, may also give you a head start understanding new mortgage disclosure forms that lenders will provide to mortgage applicants starting in August.

You can find the toolkit on the CFPB website here.
