5 Things to Keep in Mind When Purchasing Your First Home


Posted: August 30, 2021 by Paige Herron

Buying a home can be stressful but our realtors are here to help. We want to change your life!


  1. Use a trusted Realtor - This goes for anyone purchasing a home. Agents know the market. They check on comparable properties and are looking out for your best interest in the home buying process. There are many things a realtor can help you through from negotiating prices to navigating the home inspection process.
  2. Find a local lender - Your realtor can help you find one they trust, if you aren’t sure where to begin. Knowing what you can afford is going to help you in the long run. Getting pre-approved is helpful but getting pre-qualified will help the process go by much faster. Local lenders are realtors will work together and want to help you get the best bang for your buck.
  3. Stick to your budget - Buying a house is arguably one of the biggest purchases you will ever make. Buying a house will have a significant impact on your finances. Even if the lender says you are approved for a loan, you should make sure that works for you.
  4. Start the home search - At this point, you and your realtor will have discussed what works best for you and your financial situation and you will start looking at homes within that criteria. Keep in mind that you may not be able to get everything you are wanting or expecting. Buying a home is all about compromises.
  5. Enjoy the process - This is the first time you’re looking at potential homes. Once you get through the process of searching for a home, you will be living a brand new life!
