Home Buying Basics

  • Determine your budget: Before you start looking at homes, you should have a clear idea of how much you can afford. Take into account your income, expenses, and any other financial obligations you have.

  • Get pre-approved for a mortgage: Once you know your budget, it's a good idea to get pre-approved for a mortgage. This will give you a clear idea of how much you can borrow and help you focus your search on homes that are within your price range.

  • Choose a real estate agent: A good real estate agent can help you find the right home and guide you through the buying process. Look for an agent who has experience working with first-time homebuyers and who understands the local market.

  • Start your search: Once you have your budget and a real estate agent, you can start looking at homes. Make a list of your must-haves and nice-to-haves, and be prepared to compromise on some things.

  • Make an offer: When you find a home you like, your agent will help you make an offer. Your offer should be based on the condition of the home, the local market, and your budget.

  • Get a home inspection: Before you close on the home, you should have a professional home inspection. This will identify any issues with the home that may need to be addressed before you move in.

  • Close the deal: Once the home inspection is complete, you can close the deal. This involves signing a lot of paperwork, so be prepared to spend some time at the closing table.
