5 Tips For First-Time Homebuyers


When it comes to buying your first home, up-to-the-second information and professional service are a must. Our TEAM OF REALTORS caters to your individual needs and provides outstanding service and support from start to finish. We deal with first-time home buyers everyday and discovered that many folks just don’t understand the process. Well, here are 5 tips to finding your first home!

1) Stop relying on the syndication sites (Zillow, Trulia, etc.) as information is unreliable and often outdated. The best information comes directly from the MLS (multi-list service) and can be provided to you instantly by your Buyer’s Agent.

2) Purchaser’s never pay commission. Commissions and fees owed to the Buyer’s Agent are worked into the sale price and structured long before you make your offer.

3) Shop mortgage companies and get a pre-approval letter. Know what you need and how much you can afford. It’s fast and easy.

4) Never use a part-time Realtor. While your dream house is going under contract, your part-time Realtor might be waiting tables.

5) Sign a Buyer’s Agency contract. Too many purchasers think they need to “keep their options open” when it comes to committing to a Buyer’s Agent. Make a commitment so your Buyer’s Agent can focus on you as a client.
