Interested in purchasing a home? Don’t know where to start, here are a few tips that may help you in this new journey!

Get Prequalified! We recommend getting prequalified by a preferred lender, not an online lender. An online lender will shop out your information and get multiple rate codes, which will cause multiple pulls on your credit and lower your credit score.

What are your MUST HAVES: Get an idea of your must haves when in the process of looking for a home (number of bedrooms, baths, school districts, locations, size of lot, etc.) This will help the realtor find a home that is perfect for you and not waste your time on homes that do not meet your standards.

Deal Killers: What are some things that are absolutely off the table when scouting for a home? Your agent having knowledge of what your likes/dislikes are will make them better able to narrow down homes they know you will love. It will also make the process faster and more efficient for you and them both.

Be ready to move quickly. Real estate purchases are first come first serve! With these tips you will be prepared to enter the process of buying your first home!
