So you’ve decided to buy a home. Congratulations! This is a very exciting time, but you might not be entirely sure what lies ahead or what steps you’ll need to take to achieve your goal.

The first step will be for you to connect with a lender and get pre-approved. There are several reasons for this. For one, a lender will be able to identify the price range you can afford so that you don’t wind up searching outside of your budget. They will also be able to explain what financing programs you qualify for, as well as what kind of monthly payments you can expect.

Your agent should have the tools, systems, and knowledge necessary to help you submit a winning offer.

After you’ve met with a lender, the next step in the home buying process is to hire an experienced agent. You should make sure this person will do more than just open doors and let you roam around properties during showings without any guidance. Your Realtor should be the kind of professional who truly cares about your best interests and who will help you identify properties that match your wants and needs. Then, once you’ve found the right home, your agent should have the tools, systems, and knowledge necessary to help you submit a winning offer.
