A Quick Thought On First Time Home Buying

A Quick Thought On First Time Home Buying

Image title

The warmer weather inevitably brings out more home shoppers...and many of them are looking to buy for the first time. With interest rates still very low, borrowing money is pretty cheap compared to just a few years ago. Most first time buyers look at what they are spending in rent every month and decide they want to start building equity in an appreciable asset...like real estate.  


It can be an overwhelming experience without the right guidance. Do you find a house first or worry about the loan? Who should you use for financing? What are closing costs and title insurance and who pays it? Who inspects the home to make sure it's in good shape? Who pays for that? How long will it all take? Should I start looking 2 months out or 10 months out?

SO MANY QUESTIONS...and these just scratch the surface for almost every home purchase.

It doesn't have to be a daunting task. I LOVE working with first time home buyers. Watching someone get the keys to their first home is always a very cool experience for me, and I always enjoy seeing a first time home buyer gain knowledge about the process along the way. I've helped just under 100 people buy a home in this area over the last 2 years...and MANY of them are looking for their first home. My goal is always to make it as FUN and STRESS-FREE as possible, while still making sure EVERY base is covered. I also have preferred lenders that are familiar with different grants and funds that may save you money as a first time home buyer. 

Call me. Shoot me a text. Email me. Sign up on the website and start viewing properties. Whichever way you choose, get in touch and let me know what you are looking for in a home. Get the jump on your competition and put me to work for you. Don't lose out on that house you've been eyeing online. It's important to have an experienced and full-time, available agent that has sold many homes out in the current market. That's me!!!

Enjoy the site and thanks for reading,
