What do all first time buyers need….
1. MONEY, in know sounds silly, but with the FHA financing and past 100% financing out there, buyers forget about down payment. Sorry, its back, and not to mention all the mortgage closing costs..
2. Patience, yeah it’s true. You and your family will have to look at dozens of homes online, a handful in person, and maybe the patience means waiting till you have a large enough down payment, or enough MONEY SAVED, up. It’s OK, the home of your dreams will be there. NOW, if your realtor says THIS IS A GREAT BUY, and it wont last long, if you like it you need to ACT FAST…Well in that scenario, you need to listen to your realtor and make an offer asap.
3. You need a great Realtor, frankly a Realtor like Justin your Houseguy.org…shameless plug. Here are what others have had to say about me and my expertise with first time home buyers so it isn’t all just me saying “i’m a great Realtor.” 🙂
