10 STEPS TO BUYING YOUR FIRST HOME
Go to your bank or another lender, and get preapproved for a loan. You will want to look at what you are approved for and what you can afford. Often times these are two very different numbers.
Choose a REALTOR® that fits you. This can be done by interviewing agents, previewing websites or through a recommendation from friends or family.
Determine what you are looking for in a home and what neighborhoods you like. Make a list of "must haves" to give to your agent.
Begin previewing properties.
Make an offer on the house that fits your lifestyle.
Find an inspector for the home inspection. Your REALTOR® may be able to recommend a trustworthy inspector to you.
Negotiations: Choosing a REALTOR® that is well versed in negotiation will work to your advantage. They will assist you in negotiating everything during the closing process.
Move in and make yourself at home!
