Tips For First Time Buyers

Tips For First Time Buyers

If you are currently in the market for your first home, you probably have lots of questions. You are about to be making an important decision for your future, a great investment of both money and time. I have a wealth of experience helping first time buyers like you make sound, informed decisions. Here are some tips that can help make your home buying process successful:

  • Tip #1: Do Your Homework

    The perfect home won't find you by itself. The key step in buying a home is doing the proper research. Educate yourself on local schools, neighborhoods, and the kinds of homes available

  • Tip #2: Get Pre-Qualified

    Getting prequalified for a loan normally only requires a short phone conversation with a lender, and can greatly help your home search. Prequalification provides you with an estimated monthly payment and a price range to use as a guide when shopping for homes.

  • Tip #3: Decide What You're Looking For

    Settle on the home features that are important to you (covered parking, hardwood floors, architectural style, etc.) and make an ordered list. Having well established guidelines will help narrow down your search and will prevent you from being shown properties that lack your key amenities.

  • Tip #4: Relax

    You don't have to make an offer on the first home you see. Make sure to look at other listings in the area to get a feel for the marketplace

  • Tip #5: Protect Yourself

    Have the home inspected, and work through any problem areas that may arise. Paying for a quality home inspection is absolutely crucial! You can save yourself thousands in repair costs by being sure of what you're getting into.
