Buying a home is an involved process, but the first steps are simple.

Many clients ask us where to start when buying a home. They are ready and willing to make that purchase, but they just don’t know where to begin.

The first thing you are going to want to do is to determine what your needs are. Is it a four-bedroom house? Three bathrooms? One car garage? Whatever the case may be, you’ll need to have a clear picture of what it is that you’re looking for.

The next step is to determine your budget. The best way to do that is to contact a mortgage lender and get prequalified. Once you have that preapproval letter, you’ll have a better understanding of what your price range is.

Finally, you’ll want to get together with an experienced, qualified real estate agent to start looking at homes.

That’s how you begin the home-buying process. If you have any questions about any of this or need an agent you can trust, reach out to us. We’d be happy to help with all of your real estate needs.
