It’s absolutely vital that you find a real estate professional who understands your goals and who is ready and able to guide you through the home buying process.
Talk to mortgage brokers.
Many first-time home buyers don’t take the time to get prequalified. They also often don’t take the time to shop around to find the best mortgage for their particular situation. It’s important to ask plenty of questions and make sure you understand the home loan process completely.
Factor maintenance and repair costs into your buying budget.
Even brand-new homes will require some work. Don’t leave yourself short and let your home deteriorate.
Be ready to move.
This is especially true in markets with a low inventory of homes for sale. It’s very common for home buyers to miss out on the first home they wish to purchase because they don’t act quickly enough. By the time they’ve made their decision, they may find that someone else has already purchased the house.
Select where you want to live.
Compile a list of three or four neighborhoods you’d like to live in, taking into account nearby schools, recreational facilities, area expansion plans, and safety.

"John came highly recommended, and sure enough within 24 hours we had multiple offers on our house ALL ABOVE ASKING PRICE!! John was an incredible negotiator and didn't give up one penny we didn't have to. He kept us in the loop on what mattered and didn't bother us with the small stuff. He completely earned our trust early in the game, and we felt like VIP's during the entire process. We have moved out of state, and after meeting with three top realtors we realized John set the bar WAY high... no one comes close!"
