Utah County Homes for Sale - Buying Your First Home

Well the time has come; you are finally out making a good living.  You are beginning to get tired of paying rent, the number one advise that friends and family are giving you is, Buy a House.  By this time you are about to be hitched and have probably saved enough money for a down payment.  After a fair amount of thinking about it, you jump over the first hurdle and decide to go for it.  Now once you are focused about what you want you then jot down a list of things you want in a house.  That being done the search begins.  These days the task of sifting through hundreds of potential houses is not as hard.  With a few mouse clicks, you can see multiple house listings and take virtual tours of houses for sale.

The key points to consider are the location and the surrounding neighborhood of the house and your estimated budget.  It is important to talk with a loan officer and determine if your budget ideas sound reasonable, and get a preapproval letter if possible, this will help a lot latter on you will see.  Once you have set out the criteria its time to take yourself down to a real estate agent.  An efficient real estate agent will pay close attention to your wants, needs, and show you houses accordingly.  This will ensure that within the span of two weeks you will have a maximum number of houses to see which will fit your desired profile. 

Then starts the personal viewing process, and this is a long, tiresome process indeed.  Careful attention is needed when venturing out to see homes.  Once you start seeing places that you like, slow down and don't make the biggest mistake of your life by jumping for the first house that you see.  Even if the first house you see actually has the perfect room size, the awesome kitchen and even the ideally shaped terrace, wait.  Mark it out as one of your favorites and see others.  While inside the house, be thorough with your investigations and personal observations.  Mark out all the things you like about the house and mark out the things that you do not like.  Take a good look at all the rooms and the roof as well as if its accessible, and make a note even if it is not.

After leaving the house rate it personally from 1-10.  Also, take a good look at its surrounding location.  Note the size and shape of the car parking area, and take note of the lawn and back yard shape and size.  Another thing to focus on is the garage.  Lastly insist that the Realtor tell you about all the defects of the house that are not openly visible.  Ultimately, revisit the top selected houses to make an informed decision.
