Now Is The Time To Buy A New Home! By Ahmed Elbatrawy

Real Estate Agent with nnnnnn
Hello Minnesota!
There has never been a better time to buy a home than today. It may seem simple, but it’s true. Historically low interest rates, vast supply, and a multitude of great deals including bank owned and short sale opportunities have driven prices down and made home buying more affordable than ever.
But where to begin?
The home buying process may seem complicated and frustrating at times, but if you follow these simple steps, you will be well on your way with keys in hand, ready to open the front door of your new home!

Ten Steps to Buying a New Home:

  1. Figure out how much you can afford.
  2. Know your rights as a home buyer.
  3. Shop for a loan.
  4. Learn about home buying programs.
  5. Shop for a home. 
  6. Make an offer. 
  7. Get a home inspection.
  8. Shop for homeowner's insurance.
  9. Sign papers.
  10. Congratulations!  You are a homeowner!
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting easy to follow, detailed information that will help you in the home buying process from start to finish. We’ll look at each step individually, and soon enough, you will learn how to make your dreams of home ownership, a reality!
Looking forward to speaking with you soon!
Ahmed Elbatrawy, REALTOR®

Hi Ahmed,

Welcome to Active Rain and congratulations on your first post! Here are 5 quick tips to help you get started...

1. If you haven't done so already...take a look at the different Groups that are available on ActiveRain. Once you have found a few that look interesting to you go ahead and join them...that way it will be easier for you to frequent them more often.

2. Bear in mind that real estate laws vary in each state so what someone might say in one blog may or, may not apply in your state.

3. As you become more familiar with the blog post authors you can add them as Associates. Many in return will add you to their's as well. It's a great way to extend and grow relationships!

4. Read a few blogs each day until you reach the stage as to how you want to present your posts and professional image online.

5. You can accumulate points each day and week by posting 10 comments each day and a total of 10 blogs each week. You can also accumulate additional points by inviting others to sign up...look for the "Invite Others" link from your home page.

At any rate, the opportunities to learn and network here are incredible. Best of luck to you!
