1ST TIME HOME BUYER

1. Pre-Qualification

Meet with a mortgage lender to see if you get pre-qualified for a mortgage. You can also see how much you will qualify for and how much you want to/can afford to pay for your home. Sellers will be much more responsive to serious buyers who are pre-qualified.

2. What You Want & What You Need

Make a list of what you need and what you want in a home. This takes some careful thinking and planning. Once you know exactly what you are looking for in a home, Jessica will be able to begin searching for your dream home.

3. Get Professional Representation

Hiring a real estate professional, such as Jessica, will ensure you each step in the home purchasing process and make it as stress-free as possible. Jessica will be able to provide you with essential market information and recommendations on ideal properties that fit your criteria.

4. Be Objective

Often enough, first time home buyers get emotional when purchasing their first home. It is important to keep an objective state of mind and think with your head, rather than your heart. Jessica works with you to ensure that no rash decisions are made, so that you have no regrets in the future.

5. Home Inspection

Acquiring the services of a professional home inspector can save you thousands of dollars in the long-run. A home inspector will evaluate the home and reveal any repairs or damages that need to be fixed. Being aware of any structural damage to the home before closing will prevent you from being liable for any repairs in the future.
