5 Steps towards Buying a Home

Are you trying to purchase a home? Here are five steps to help you prepare for this ordeal.

  1. Locate a local lender

    The first step is to find a lender near you so that you can meet them in person. Local agents will be familiar with the market around you and can offer you the most appropriate loan program. Request your lender to find a loan program that can help with closing costs. A common perception is that it’s impossible to find 100 percent financing for a home. You will be surprised to learn that this is not the case. Secure a pre-approval for a loan as soon as you have hit the right program.

  2. Focus on the area you want to live in

    It is important to research the areas you are interested in. Check out the locality, health, and schooling facilities, commercial activities and tax rates. This activity will help you narrow down your search to your requirements. Furthermore, you will get a fair idea of the cost of homes in the area. 

  3. Search and contact an agent specializing in the area of your interest

    This is a vital step that can save you time and minimize risk. A real estate agent with proven track record can land you the home of your dreams, but you must trust him or her. They are professionals who have the knowledge and resources to find exactly what you are looking for.

  4. Don't turn a blind eye to houses that need some repairs

    A house needing a little renovation should not put you off completely; think long term. Could the location allow you to save money on fuel or make a better school accessible to your children? Many real estate agents have contacts with reputable contractors who can repair your new home. In such cases, an HUD program, also known as 203(k) can come in handy. It will enable you to pay for repairs through a primary mortgage.

  5. Be ready to take action

    It is possible that the first home you set sights on is the right one for you. At other times you may find families who have to relocate quickly and want to sell their great home quickly. Don’t waste time over-analyzing if such an opportunity presents itself because they will be snapped up very quickly. A real estate agent can help you find such unique offers.
