As a first-time home buyer, the process can seem overwhelming. Here are 5 tips to help make it easier:

  1. Get pre-approved for a mortgage before house hunting. This allows you to know your true price range and will speed up the process once you find a home you love.
  2. Make a must-have list vs a nice-to-have list of features you’d like in a home. Prioritize your needs like number of bedrooms, yard space, commute time, etc.
  3. Find a great real estate agent. Interview a few agents and go with one who is an area expert, has experience with buyers like you, and who you feel you can trust.
  4. Stick to your budget. It’s easy to get emotional and go over budget in a competitive market. Let your agent guide you on appropriate offer prices.
  5. Be prepared for additional costs beyond the purchase price, like closing costs, moving expenses, repairs or renovations after move-in.

Following these tips can help reduce stress and increase your chances of finding the right first home for your needs!
