Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Properties



There is nothing quite as satisfying to me as finding the perfect home for first time buyers in Rockwall, Texas.  They have an excitement unlike those who have owned homes before and it is important to walk them through each step of the buying process.  This is me and a first time home buyer and it is easy to see the excitement on both our faces.

I want to get to know them and learn as much as possible about them and discuss the things that are important in their first home.  The first order of business is to be sure they are PRE-APPROVED and if not get that process started quickly.  

Click Here to start the process.   You will find out exactly the amount of loan for which you will qualify.  This process takes a few short days.  I also talk with them about what they do in the way of entertaining, dining out, travel or if they plan on making a big purchase soon such as furniture or a new car.  I encourage them to be sure to budget enough for this over their mortgage payment.  Likely you may not want to buy at the maximum amount of which you are qualified as you don't want to be house proud and be living poor!  Budget to enjoy life!

I walk my first time home buyers through each step from our first showings and I ask in each home if this is a home they would buy.  If not, we mark that one off the list and move on to the next one until we find the perfect one.     

The real estate market in Rockwall, Texas and homes are selling quickly, often within days of putting on the market.  If priced right, they will sell!  Once you decide on the home you want, I will provide comps to determine if it is priced right.

I will walk you through the process of making the offer and negotiate with you and once we go to contract, keeping you informed and through to the closing when we meet at the closing table.   

The work begins when you find your dream home.  I will provide comps for you to determine if the home is priced right.  Homes that are priced right will sell quicky in this HOT MARKET!

I will know if it is priced right and will explain the process of how to make the offer.   Homes in Rockwall are selling from 95 - 98% of list price if priced right. 

I will go over the closing process, provide you with closing costs so you are well prepared.  You will need to be PRE-APPROVED .  Buying your first new home in Rockwall, Texas starts a new phase in your life and is exciting to me when I work with first time home buyers.

Hi Barbara,

I help first time home buyers as well. I give a discount for the home inspection and give them a really nice book about how to manage their home and how to save energy as well.

Have a great day in the Rockwall areas.

Best, Clint McKie

Good Morning Barbara,  You are the person that I would trust with a first time home buyers.  Some agents do not know the time it takes to do it right and explain things to them, good job!
