5 Tips for First-Time Home Buyers

  1. Be sure to Establish a budget: Determine how much you can afford to spend on your new home. Consider all your income, debt, and savings, and use online tools to help you determine how much mortgage is in your budget of affordability. Be sure to include extra costs, such as property taxes, utilities, maintenance, and repairs.

  2. Get yourself pre-approved for a mortgage: Getting pre-approved for a mortgage can help you determine your budget and speed up the home buying process since you'll have a better idea of what you can afford. It will also show sellers that you are serious about buying a home.

  3. Research neighborhoods and schools: Once you’ve established your budget, start exploring neighborhoods that fit your lifestyle and budget. Consider the schools in the area if you have children or plan to have them in the future.

  4. Hire an experienced real estate agent: Real estate agents have the experience and knowledge to help you navigate the complex home buying process. Your agent can guide you through the process, show you homes that fit your criteria, and do the negotiations on your behalf.

  5. Always get a home inspection: Before finalizing the sale, make sure to conduct a home inspection. This will help identify any potential problems with the property, such as structural issues or water damage, and may affect your decision to purchase the home or negotiate the price.
