      Yes! So true! Finding a Realtor who can point you toward reputable and licensed service providers (loan officer, home inspector, insurance agent) should be the very first step! Have a knowledgable real estate professional with you from the start, to guide you through the steps and be there to answer your questions as they come up! It’s a team effort to smoothly transition to a new home.

    These are some great tips, especially the one about pre-approval letters being able to give you some power to negotiate on a home’s price. When my husband and I were applying for our first home loan we definitely found it helpful to be pre-approved. I will be sharing these home buying tips with my brother and his wife, who are looking into buying their first home.

    I like what you had to say in this article about real estate agents and what you should know about them when buying a home for the first time. My wife and I are newlyweds and are thinking about buying a home. We had no idea that there are so many different factors that play a part in buying a home such as finding the right home inspector, etc. Thanks for the post!

    Thanks for the tips for finding a home! My wife and I really want to buy our first home this year, but we have been unsure where we need to start. I like that you mentioned that you should research more than just the home, but the neighborhood as well. School districts and other factors are a big deal to us, so we will take that into consideration.

    I really like your tip about making sure that you set priorities and compile a list of what you want/need in your home. My husband and I are going to be buying our first home in the next few months so we will have to keep these tips in mind. We have two little twin boys so we will be sure to check for accommodations for a growing family. Thank you so much for sharing!

    We are looking for a house and want to make sure we find a location where our kids can grow up safe. As you said, it is important to make sure you drive through a neighborhood several times a day to make sure it is the one for you. Personally, I would make sure I consult with an agent I trust in order to get the best options and to learn about the market in order to make an educated decision on the house I want.

    My husband and I are considering getting our first house, but are curious to know how to go about doing it. I like how you pointed out that one of the first things we need to do is to get pre-approved for a mortgage so that we will be able to put a deal on the house of our dreams. It will be nice to be able to go in and not have to worry about everything falling apart or not getting the one we want.

    I liked that you had mentioned that when it comes to house buying that it can be important to seek pre-approval to make sure that you can afford the homes you’re looking at. My wife and I have been wanting to purchase a home for the past year and we think we might finally be to that point. We’ll have to start looking more into pre-approval but once we can get that we’ll be able to fully start the house buying process. http://www.nwflhomesearch.com/Buyers/default.aspx

    Thanks for the advice to compare home loans from several lenders to see which one fits my needs. My wife and I are ready to buy a single-family home and start raising a family, so we thought we would start looking into the market of finding a home. As we seek pre-approval, we will be sure to find the right loan for getting a home.
