CONGRATULATIONS! Buying your first home is an amazing experience! If you're like most first time homebuyers, the first question is "Where do I start?" It can be a confusing, crazy process, but my job is to make it as fun and easy for you as possible. I will be with you every step of the way...... from getting qualified, to finding that perfect house, to finally handing over the keys. And everything in between. I look forward to sharing the process with you, so let's get started!
Getting Pre Qualified
How much can you afford? There are may programs for first time homebuyers to take advantage of, and the financing is contstantly changing. I work with several lenders, and will match you up with the best lender for your situation. Typically you can be pre-qualified with a phone conversation with a lender. That way we will know exactly what price range we should be in when we start looking for houses, and what your payments and closing costs will be. And when we find that perfect house and want to make an offer, the seller will want to see that ayou are pre-qualified with a letter stating this from the lender. So.... what will you need to get together for the lender? Mortgage Lending Calculator
Search For Homes
This is the fun part! Now that you know the right price range, searching online for that perfect home will become your daily activity! Since the search engine on my website is updated every 30 minutes, you will know as soon as I do when a new listing comes on that matches your criteria! Set up a Portal so that you will get alerts to be notified. The market is getting hotter each day and the sooner you see the listings, the better! Compare properties....... map them out......... read the descriptions....... check out all the photos! Make a list of the ones you want to see, and we'll set up a date to go see them.
