First Time Home Buying

Are you ready to purchase your first home? As an experienced agent, it is my job to guide you through EVERY step of the process!

Deciding to purchase your first home is incredibly exciting, but it can also bring up many questions as your contemplate one of your biggest investments.  This is the market for you – interest rates are at an all-time low and there are thousands of homes to choose from. You have more buying power right now then you would have had in the last 15 years!


One of the first things you will want to consider is your financial situation.  It is essential to make sure that you know your credit and that you are in a good position to buy. This is why one of the first things I will have you do is get pre-approved by a lender.  I have an excellent network of lenders that I work with and I would be happy to give you a lending referral who is knowledgeable and timely.  They will help you establish your purchase power upfront, and whether or not this is the best time for you to buy.


Now that you are pre-approved we will meet together and determine what you are looking for, including the size and location of your future home. We will talk about how many bedrooms you need and what type of home will fit your life style.  My team and I will stay in contact with you throughout the journey of looking for and finding the perfect home for you!  We will never be more than an email or phone call away.  We will provide honest explanations for things you might not understand and reliable and experienced advice.  It is our mission to make your first home purchase as easy to understand and as smooth as possible.


If it turns out you are not ready to buy now – I will still be here when you ARE ready!  I will give you honest advice as we make a plan to get you the right home in the future.  My team will stay in contact and you will receive helpful information and newsletters from us.  Things like improving your credit, paying down debt, saving money or stabilizing your work history will help to prepare you.
