Tips for First Time Home Buyers

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!
