First Timer 101

Your first home purchase can be an exciting time! I sat down with expert Buyers agent, Victoria Damron, to talk about pumping the brakes and being PREPARED going into your first home buying experience!

Here are some of Victoria’s most common hot topics with first time home-buyers:

  1. $Money$ – It’s extremely important to work with a lender and get pre-approved before you even start shopping around! It’s also crucial that you hold off on any new credit activity during this process, for the best possible outcome.
  2. Timing! – Pay close attention to paperwork, and MEET THE DEADLINES! A slow return on some signatures can make the difference in closing NOW or closing in a month!
  3. Inspections and Closing – While your agent will walk you through each step, it’s a good idea to be informed ahead of time, and anticipate paying out of pocket for inspections and closing costs!
  4. Know Your Goals and Stick to Them! – Sit down with your partner and outline what your real estate goals are. Make them very clear and be sure to communicate them to your agent that way you can all be on the same page and be committed and focused on the end result!

Happy hunting!
