First time Home Buyers

Are you to a point you would like to purchase your first home? and not really sure what to do next. I recommend contacting a knowledgeable Realtor in your area is recommended. Purchasing your first home is a big step and you will have a lot of questions. Finding a trained professional to answer all your questions helps put your mind at ease and enables a smooth process from the very start.

Once you have a good working relationship with a Realtor they will recommend getting into a lender of your choice to get pre approved. This will tell you if you are ready to begin searching for a home and what price range you should be looking in. Today’s technology has made it so house hunting typically starts online. I recommend before setting up your online search to make a list of what is important to you. Such as amenities (this means desirable or useful home features), location and public services (shopping, libraries, restaurants, outdoor activities, etc). Knowing what you want and the price you are approved for will enable you to get started in the right direction. Your Realtor will be available to answer your questions on the properties you find and set up showings for the properties that are available to purchase. Don’t be afraid to ask questions this will enable you to learn from this experience and make it one you will be good with doing again.

If you are interested in purchasing a home please don’t hesitate to come to me with your questions. I am always available to answer your questions.
