First-Time Home Buyer Tips

Buying your first home is an exciting time but might seem complicated and scary to some. But if you dream of homeownership it is important to know what to do and who to turn to. By following the steps below you will be well on your way!

Find a Realtor.

A Realtor will guide you through the home buying process such as the paperwork, marketing, pricing, negotiating and inspections. Did you know that the buyers do not pay for the working of a Realtor. The service is free for the buyers as the seller pays all of the real estate commission.

Get Pre Approved for a Mortgage.

It is best to clarify how much you are able to spend on your home before setting appointments and looking at homes. It is best be pre-approved so when you find the perfect home, you are ready to write an offer. When an offer is presented to sellers they want to see that the person who is interested in purchasing their house is pre-approved with a lender and can close on their house.

Make a Wish List.

Be sure to add the most important things you are looking for in a home to a list. Location? Neighborhoods that you really like. School Zones? Decide on what you can be flexible on, if there are any. Your Realtor will want to know the things that are most important to you.

Look At Homes.

Your Realtor will schedule the appointments needed to view the homes that are within your parameters. You will want to jot down notes as you walk through the homes on your short list……. To read the complete article click here.

I ask first-time homebuyers to make a needs and wants list.  Then I ask them to prioritize; it helps focus the search and delineate expectations.

There are many programs available for first time home buyers. Having the right Realtor and the right loan officer is essential for helping the buyers select the best loan for their needs.

Thank goodness for all the programs available! Sometimes, all you have to do is look with an open mind and you’re going to find yourself closer to where you need to be for a lot of that time.
