Deciding to purchase your first home is exciting, but you probably also have lots of questions. Here are some tips for first-time homebuyers.
Start by checking your credit score. Good credit is one of the most important factors to qualify for a loan these days. Before you start looking at houses, you’ll want to know what you can afford. So, get pre-approved for a mortgage.
Make a list of features that you’d like to have in a home and categorize them into must-haves versus two halves look online. It’s a great way to get a feel for the market and to compare homes in your price range.
And most importantly, select a realtor who will represent you throughout the entire process. Your realtor will advise you to help you negotiate and handle all the paperwork when you’re ready to make an offer.
