First Time Buyer – Tips and Advice

For the first time buyer the process can be daunting, confusing and a wonderful experience, “if its done correctly”.

Find a Real Estate Agent

This is step number one. Nancy Galvan is here to help. Real estate agents are trained not only in the real estate jargon. But in how to get you the best deal and match you with the right home. They will help you avoid first time buyer mistakes that can be costly.

The real estate agent’s fee is almost always paid by the seller out of the proceeds from the transaction. As the buyer, you can take advantage of the agent’s best advice while letting someone else foot the bill.

Get Pre-Approved For a Mortgage

Many home sellers today prefer that prospective buyers be pre-approved for a mortgage before putting in an offer to buy a property. From the seller’s perspective, this lowers the risk of a deal falling through. As a buyer, obtaining a pre-approval before making an offer strengthens your hand in negotiating with the seller. Nancy can offer referrals to local mortgage brokers. You can also find one through friends or online.

Make Sure The Home In Good Condition

Chances are a first time home buyer is going to be purchasing a lived-in home. And even the best made homes under the best of circumstances can have their flaws.
So its a good idea to take a few steps before making your purchase.
1. Do some research on local homes. The type of defects that typically show up in local homes. This could a trend caused by shoddy workmanship by a construction company. Or it may be something that tends to happen to local homes because of environmental reasons.
2. Get the home inspected by a professional.
3. Do one or more walk-through’s of the home before moving in and demand that any changes you want made are fulfilled.

First time buyers who follow these tips will find themselves living in a wonderful home they and their families will love for years to come.
