A conversation with an (ideally local) mortgage professional. Have your taxes, W2's, and paystubs, etc. ready. Know what your total budget is, and have documentation for that too. Then prepare to have a good, detailed talk with someone about what you're hoping to achieve, and see how they answer your questions.

Most importantly, be prepared to listen to the advice given, and act on it.
