First time buyer advice.

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hector And Associates 01832572

The following suggestions are for any buyer but primarily for the first time buyers

8% of the listings in the Victor Valley are short sale and 10% is a bank owned properties. In these instances, the bank will require proof of your ability to buy the home with the offer, so the first thing you want to do is to meet with your lender of choice.


84% of the listings are standard sale and that is good for the buyer because you can get a yes or no answer on your offer almost with in 24 hours, and just like with dealing with the bank you want to be ready because someone else is making an offer on the same house and you might not be the one to get into contract.


Now that you are ready to begin your search. Do you want to live in a particular neighborhood? you can find information about neighborhoods and schools with many smart phone aps or by going to Neighborhood Scout


If possible, drive the neighborhood you have selected to make sure that the location matches your needs.


OK, now you have narrowed your search and is time to sign up to receive automatic notification of any listings in your neighborhood of choice.

Hector, this is good advice for anyone looking to buy a home. There are fewer and fewer short sales and foreclosures here in AZ as well, which is good news for everyone. Thanks for sharing.
