ATTENTION! First Time Home Buyers

If you're reading this, chances are you’re new to the home buying experience. You might feel nervous, overwhelmed, or just plain confused about taking the first step. That's normal! Buying a home is one of the greatest financial decisions one will make in a lifetime, so it's only natural to feel some type of way. 


This is why I have decided to compile a few points of advice for those of you hoping to enter the real estate market. 


1. Do your research to get a feel for what you're really looking for - modern, rustic, bright? This will help you narrow down on places at the beginning of your home search.


2. Make a list of non-negotiable factors you are looking for in a home. For example, how important is a specific location? It's easy to overlook factors once you fall in love with a place.


3. When you hire a buyer's agent, do so under a written agreement!


4. And of course, enjoy the process! Get a realtor who is fun and spends the time to really get to know you and your unique needs. I love it when my clients become my friends! Buying a home can feel stressful at times, which is why it's important to have fun and really enjoy this huge accomplishment.
