First time home buyer? Where should I start?

If you are first time home buyer, it is very important to know where should you start your home buying process. Buying a home is very exciting. This is one of the most important decisions you will make, so make sure you do it right.

Contact your lender

One of the first steps when buying a home is contacting a lender. Before you start your home search, it is very important to know how much can you afford. Owning a home should be something special and beneficial for you and your family, and not financial stress. When looking at homes for sale, it is important to keep your desires within your financial capabilities.

Hire a real estate professional

According to the National Association of Realtors, 87% of buyers purchased their home through a real estate agent or broker in 2017—a share that has steadily increased from 69 percent in 2001. It is very important who do you choose to help you with one of the biggest investments you will make. You need a local expert who can help you choose the right neighborhood, provide market analyses and other information related to property purchase. There should be no mistake when it comes to investing in real estate.

One of the first steps should be the conversation with your local real estate professional about your real estate needs, lifestyle, budget, type of property you are looking for, goals, etc. After that, a Realtor should have an option to set you up with automatic listing updates that match your criteria. At the same time, your Realtor should contact you with new listings that would be a great deal for you and your family.
