I love working with first time home buyers! It can be fun,
exciting and nerve racking all at the same time. Here are some tips to help you
as you begin this fabulous home buying journey.
First, work with a great agent. This is imperative for your
search. It is important that you have someone advocating for you as you make
one of the biggest purchases of your life! A great agent will work with you to
find the best home at the best value, and make sure you have security in the
transaction. They also have resources to lenders, contractors, inspectors and
much more. Second, don’t be afraid to talk to your lender. This is huge
as you being the process of buying your first home. Make sure you know where
you stand on the financial side. Talk with them about your options like FHA vs.
conventional and down payments. Knowing
where you are is necessary to get where you want to go! Finally, what are you looking for? I always advise my
clients to think about the top five features your home must have. Take a few
moments to think about five must haves in your next home and rank them one
through five. This is a great starting line for your agent and a place for you
to begin your search. These will help
you know what home is right for you!

This is about more than real estate. It is about your life and your dreams.
