What Do I Need To Do Before I Buy My First House in Delaware County, PA As A First Time Home Buyer?

Delaware County PAIf you are a First Time Home Buyer in Delaware County PA and you are ready to start the process of buying your first home, here is what you need to do:

-  Find a Realtor that you feel comfortable with and ask them to be your guide. 

Meet with your Realtor at their office to have a Buyer's Consultation so you can learn about the buying process and to ask questions that you may have

Find out if you are eligible for financial assistance as a First Time Home Buyer in Delaware County and in Pennsylvania

-  If you are eligible for money and classes are required, begin these classes as soon as possible.  You may need a letter from the agency giving you the money in order to place an offer.  This letter is given to you after you complete the few required classes and a consultation session.

-  Obtain a pre-approval letter from a mortgage person - Ask your Realtor to recommend a mortgage person that will be with you at the settlement table

-  Once these things are in place you are ready to begin your search in earnest!

Please note, if you begin your search before you know what you can afford, you will most likely fall in love with a house beyond your means and then end up comparing other houses to that more expensive house. 

Also, if you are able to get grant money and you look at houses before you have that in order and you find a house you like, you could possibly loose that house to another buyer who does have all their papers in order.

Be good to yourself; take the time to get your papers in order before you look at houses.
