Four Easy Steps to Buying Your First Home

Step 1: Getting Organized & Getting Pre-Qualified

Time to get those finances in order! This is where you gather up your bank and financial statements and meet with a lender (or a few) to discuss your options and to get prequalified for a loan (no obligation required).

Step 2: Finding the Perfect Agent

The agent you choose to work with when buying a home can make a big difference! The right agent will mesh with your communication styles, but will also be able to help you target homes in your price range and preferred area.

Step 3: Searching For Your Dream Home

This is the really fun part! Here's where you get to use a home search tool (like ours) to find homes that perfectly match your needs! Once you find a few you like, your agent can schedule some showings.

Step 4: Learning the Home Buying Process

Once you find the perfect house, the real work begins! Now's the time to work with your Realtor to make an offer, order a home inspection and appraisal, and get your mortgage finalized!
