First Time Buyers,

it's a whole new world!

As a first time home buyer, you're likely to have LOTS of questions. You need someone who has the time, patience, and understanding to take you through the process and answer those questions thoroughly.  

You'll get advise from your parents, your friends, your co-workers, and your crazy Uncle Steve and it can be quite overwhelming.  Remember that their advice is okay, but you really want a professional who has experience in the field to handle your purchase.  I like my family doctor, but I don't want her performing a heart surgery.  Same concept.  You want someone who specializes in residential real estate to guide you.

Helpful Hints for First TIme Buyers:

  • Get pre-qualified for your mortgage BEFORE you start looking at homes.  Nothing worse than falling in love with a home and losing it to another bidder who was already qualified and ready to perform.
  • Budget for ALL expenses.  Property taxes, repair and maintenance, utilities, etc, can add up quickly.  Don't make yourself "house poor". 
  • Spend the money on the home inspection.  It seems like a lot of expense when you're looking at homes, but it can save you thousands in the long run!
