Our top first-time home buyer advice starts with:
- Getting Specific: Chances are you already have an idea of what you want, so write it down and fill in your details. Keep in mind that hardly anyone finds exactly what they want, but making this list will help you decide what’s really important to you. Hitting six out of seven on your list may just be achievable!
- Thinking About Your Finances: Cost is obviously a big factor when purchasing a home. Start by looking at your take-home pay and adding up monthly expenses. Don't forget to factor in a little cushion for emergencies. Consider an owner-financed home purchase, which is an easier way to afford the home you've always wanted.
- Looking Thoroughly: As with anything, research potential homes, areas and prices before you go out and look. After researching, get out and look around with your trusty agent and even do some follow-up driving around the neighborhood. If you find something perfect don’t wait too long to make your move.
- Budgeting For Maintenance: If you’re lucky enough to find your perfect home, make sure you start saving for a maintenance budget. Every home, no matter how new, at some point will require some maintenance, and having this will make sure your investment remains secure.
