First Time Home Buyer

Okay, you have decided it’s time to stop paying rent and buy your first home. Now, it’s time to make a plan! Remember, this is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make and you don’t need to do this alone. Contact a Realtor® that you trust and a Mortgage Lender with expertise in First Time Homebuyers. They can help guide you through the process.

Initially, you need to determine what you can afford which requires that you gather all of your monthly expenses so that you can set an all-inclusive budget. Do you have money set aside for a down payment? If not, set up a new home savings fund. How’s your credit? Check your credit (FICO) score and work with your lender to get your score over 680.

Have your Realtor® and your lender advise you of the many programs for First Time Homebuyers. Once you have decided to buy, get pre-qualified and you are ready to look for a house! The fun begins! You, your Realtor® and your lender will work together to find the home of your dreams.

Once you get an accepted offer, have the home inspected. This is a critical step that cannot be ignored. Your Home Inspector will thoroughly inspect the home and advise you of any issues they see of concern. Sometimes they may want you to bring in another expert: structural engineer, roofer, electrician, radon, mold, etc. Again, it’s a team effort. Once potential inspection issues are resolved and the appraisal is in, it’s time to set the closing.

Then, it’s time to take a deep breath and move into the home of your dreams!
