Knowing your credit score as well as how much you can afford will give you a leg up.
Once you know this information, you can start to work with a lender to get a pre-approval.
3. Find A Real Estate Agent
Once you’ve done your preliminary research, the next step is to find a dependable agent.
As a buyer, you have many options. Luckily for you, this is one of the easiest steps because you can get the help of a professional for free.
In most cases, you won’t have to pay for a buyer’s agent. Typically, the seller pays for the real estate commissions.
A good agent will also guide you through the process from start to finish. A best friend beside you who looks out for your best interests along the way.
When starting out, I highly recommend any of our agents at Hometown (I’m a little biased). We all love working with first-time homebuyers. The satisfaction we get knowing you’ve found the perfect house is the fuel that drives us all.
