So you want to buy a house? Great! Becoming a homeowner is one of the most amazing feelings in the world. There is nothing like coming home everyday to your very own piece of peace. It is your time, your money invested, and your memories made there. With something so important it is absolutely necessary that you go in prepared, locked, and loaded when starting your home buying process. Buying your first home or condo should be something that most people would want to experience in their lifetime. Below are a few tips to consider when buying a home. 

  • The Numbers Game. - It is very important to know what your financial health when buying a home. Your creditworthiness will play a big role in your ability to get a mortgage to buy your dream home. Talk with a knowledgeable lender who can guide you step by step in the process of getting your financing in order to make the big purchase. Don't be afraid to ask questions. No one knows your financial situation as well as you do, so remember never bite off more than you can chew and ultimately make the best decision for you and your family.

  • Get Protected. - Would you go to court without an attorney? Of course not! So why would you buy a home without a Realtor. It is important to have good representation when buying property. The seller will have an licensed professional working on their behalf and you should too. There's a common misconception with Realtors that you have to pay a realtor when buying a home but the realtor is paid based on a commission negotiated with seller(s) and their agent. Get you a realtor who will meet your needs and go the distance to ensure your purchase or sale is as seamless as possible.

  • Know What You Want. - It is very important that you sit down and decide what is important to you in your new home search. Create you a list of wants, needs, must-haves, and deal breakers. When you know what you need and want in a home, it helps your agent have a clearer understanding of what to look for which would save you time in the long run. Buying a home can be overwhelming but remember to enjoy the fun in it as you find your very own dream home.
