FIRST-TIME HOME BUYERS
Buying a home is a complicated process, and it can be daunting for first-time home buyers. You can learn more about the buying process here, but remember these guidelines as you start your search.
Think about your “dream home.”Are you looking for a single-family residence, or a condo or townhouse? What kind of neighborhood do you want to live in? What areas are you interested in? Are you open to a “fixer-upper?” Do you need a large outdoor space for pets or entertaining? Do you need to be close to schools or public transportation hubs?
You’ll also want to consider your financial situation, including the amount of money you have on hand. How much can you raise for a down payment? What does your credit score look like? Do you have funds to devote to home improvements?
Purchasing a home includes multiple timelines for repairs, inspections, financial guarantees, and signing. As buyer, you’ll want to consider your own scheduling concerns carefully so that we can design a timeline that serves you. As your real estate agent, I’ll make sure the process runs smoothly from initial tour to final closing.
