How do I start looking for a home?

Real Estate Agent with Midwest Premier Realty, Gurnee IL 224-321-0699

So you're about to take the plunge into homeownership. Once you've figured out you can buy a house and how to finance it, the next thing you need is a list of attributes you want in your dream home.

First do some research. Information is readily available at the click of a mouse. Establish what's most important to you: Where are you flexible and what can't you live without?

Next share your list with your real estate agent. For example, while you might want to restrict your search to one area, your agent's familiarity with your needs, plus an understanding of what's available on the market, may have you looking (successfully) outside your preferred location, where you can meet all your needs and get more for your money.

The key is to keep an open mind and trust your agent's experience and expertise. Your perfect home may be closer than you know.

I always suggest buyers call an agent first to get a recommendation for a great lender and to set up a good search for them.
