A Step-by-Step First Time Buyer's Guide

Buying a home is one of the most exciting milestones of your life. To prepare yourself for this moment, you need to know what to expect during the process. This step-by-step first time buyer’s guide created by your agent will help reduce the stress of buying a home and help you enjoy the journey as much as possible.


Decide to Buy

Choosing the agent that's best for your needs is crucial to ensuring that you find the home that is perfect for you. A home is much more than four walls and a roof, so whether you're a first time home buyer or a savvy investor, I'm confident that my team and I can help you find your place in the world. 


Start the Process

It's important to understand your "purchase power." Speaking with a lender will help you determine how much you are able to spend on a home while still maintaining a healthy financial situation. Be prepared to discuss topics such as credit score, financial documents, your debt-to-income ratio and down payment requirements. Feel free to reach out to our preferred lender recommendations. 


Begin Your Home Search

Now that we have a goal price-range in mind, we will collaborate and discuss your wants and needs to create a custom home search. Once criteria has been defined, my team and I will create a personalized list of homes to view. This part of the process involves exploring neighborhoods, touring properties, locating your ideal home and crafting that winning offer.
