Buying a home is one of the biggest investments a person is likely to make so being prepared is super important so here is a list of things to do to make sure you are on the right track:

  1. Talk to a Lender: It is super important to talk to a lender to find out how much house you can afford and what the best loan type for you. We have a list of great lenders to choose from so for help finding one click here.

  2. Meet with an Agent: You will want a dedicated buyers agent to help you through the process. Let them know the type of home you are looking for and keep an open line of communication sometimes you might find the home online and sometimes they might suggest it to you. The great thing about having a buyers agent is that they can get you into any property on the market and help you get the information you need to make that decision.

  3. Pick a Home: Once you have picked a home your agent will help you negotiate the price and terms. Your agent will then guide you through the process of inspections and due diligence. This is often the most stressful part of the deal so knowing that going in will make it easier to get through it.

Hopefully by following these steps your buying experience will be a positive one and will help get you to your end goal of being a homeowner. To get started check out our list of agents and start a conversation with one of them. They will be happy to get you pointed in the right direction and on the path to homeownership.
