Tessier Team on First Time Home Buying
Take out a piece of paper and write down your wish list. This is the time to really think about what you want in your first home. You may not be able to get it all, but start with what is most important to you. This will give you a great place to start and then you can look it over and decide if it is realistic.

Before you start surfing the web for your perfect home, meet with a lender to see what your buying power is. You need to be realistic. You don’t want to find your dream home, only to find out it is too far out of reach.

Be patient. It takes some time to find a home to suit all your needs. Though it may not be your dream home, just remember, your first home likely won’t be your last home.

Buy a home you can afford. Look at your personal budget to see how much wiggle room you have for a mortgage. Then, go get pre-qualified and compare the amounts. The lowest of the two amounts should be where you cap your home search.

Have a talk with your Realtor about all the costs associated with buying a home. A lot of people don’t have this talk and end up surprised. Better to be informed and prepared.
