Buying Your First Home

Buying Your First Home

Most first-time homebuyers are unaware of how to actually buy a home. Buying your first home doesn’t have to be difficulty. Use the following tips to guide you on your journey.

1.) Research Where You Want to Live

This seems pretty obvious, but you’d be surprised how many times people buy homes in areas they end regretting. So do your research. Check out the crime statistics, figure out what the shopping, dining and entertainment options are. Is the home close to your job? These are all things you should consider before narrowing in on a particular house.

2.) Check Your Credit

Get a copy of your credit report and resolve any issues or inaccuracies that happen to show up. As a first-time homebuyer you’re likely to be need financing. Taking care of any credit issues beforehand is going to make buying a home much easier.

3.) Shore up Finances

What’s your income like? How much, if any, debt do you have? Income and debt is going to help determine how much home you can realistically afford. Getting a letter of pre-approval is the main step here. Not only does a letter of pre-approval tell you how much home you will qualify for, it also increases the odds that a seller will accept your offer to purchase.

4.) Hire an Agent

Hop online and do your research about the top Henderson real estate agents. Reach out to friends and family members regarding their experiences with particular agents. The more information you can gather about an agent the better. You want an agent on your side who knows what they’re doing and is going to go to bat for you when it matters most. Do not take this lightly.
