KNOW WHAT YOU WANT

Carefully craft your wish list and try to stick to it. If you are shopping with your partner, discuss your must-haves and deal breakers together so you’ll be on the same page during your house hunt.  Remember you are not only buying a house, but the neighborhood too. Is it safe? Talk to neighbors and ask questions. Spend time in the area to determine if it offers the lifestyle conveniences you’ll need.

TAKE YOUR TIME

You may begin to feel overwhelmed and confused after touring several homes. Too many homes in a short period of time will run together in your mind and you won’t recall which kitchen or which master bedroom belonged to which house.  Stay within your price range and consider added expenses such as taxes, home owner’s association fees, maintenance etc.

find a good lender

When it comes to choosing a mortgage lender, it pays to shop around and talk to at least three lenders to get a sense of the person, the interest rates, and the specifics of the loan they can provide you with. Your agent may have recommendations, but it’s best to do your own research, too.
