Your Home Buying Guide 

When starting your process with buying your first home there are a few steps you will want to start with. 

1. Save Up A Down Payment

Saving up the necessary amount for a down payment should be number 1. Without the down payment, you can't buy a home. It is also important to note that the higher the downpayment the less you need to pay in interest on the home. 

2. Guage Your Mortgage Payment 

Finding out what your mortgage payment will be is simple and quick. You can even use online calculators to do the guesswork for you! 

3. Research Local Areas 

Look into all the nearby cities, and pick the one that offers the right atmosphere and pricing for you! 


Tips To Avoid A Money Pit 

When searching for your next home make sure to look for these issues to avoid any major repairs in the future.

I suggest using an experienced home inspector that can find structural damage, and warn you about costly repairs.  

  1. Leaking Roof
  2. Plumbing Systems 
  3. Electrical Systems 
  4. Heating & Air Conditioning Systems 
  5. Signs of Rotting
