First Time Home Buyers Advice (With A Video!)

April 18th, 2017

Here are 4 simple tips to keep in mind as a first time home buyer!

If you've never bought a home before, you may be wondering how in the world do I even get started? What is the first step to take?

Well, first of all you need THE RIGHT REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL! Of course, I would love to offer you 5-star service everyday! My job is to work for YOU and YOUR best interests!

1. Know what you can afford!

We all love our Zillow and HAR apps on our phones! But I think it's natural to pick out a house that might actually be way over our budget. It's always best to talk to a lender when you begin your home buying process, that way you are ready to submit an offer, and you kow how much home you can afford!

2. Know where you want to live.

Of course it's good to know what city you want to live in! I would recommend narrowing down your search even to a few neighborhoods. Or, if you have kids, you may want a home zoned to a specific elementary or high school. These specific details will help keep your search narrow and that will make life easier on you!

3. Be patient!

Waiting is never fun, especially when you are purchasing your first home! You want to be in there yesterday! But if you know EXACTLY where you want to live and how much to spend, it's worth waiting to find the perfect home for you!

4. Jump on the right one!

When you do find the right home in your sweet spot, JUMP ON IT, or someone else will! This is where I can help make sure you have the strongest offer possible! 


My goal is ALWAYS to provide 5-star service every day. Finding a home is an amazing thing! So much of life happens in the home, which is why I love helping people find the perfect place for them!

Have an amazing week and please call or message me any time to chat about how I can help you!
