Tips on Buying Your First Home May 22, 2011 By Bill Huss
Don’t be intimidated by the prospect of buying your first home. While the process may seem daunting, once you break the process down you’ll see that you can certainly do it. Today’s marketplace is perfect for buyers in that mortgage rates are low and there are plenty of homes to choose from.

Here’s how to get started:
1. Get approved for your mortgage loan before you house shop. It’s no fun looking at homes that are way above what you can afford. If you are preapproved for $200,000, you can save yourself a lot of time and trouble by narrowing down your prospects from the beginning. Shop for a good rate at your normal bank and then see what traditional mortgage lenders have to offer as well.
2. Narrow down your choice of locations. It’s important to look down the road at things like local school systems (even if you don’t have children) because eventually you will want to sell the property. Real estate taxes vary from city to city, as well, and will have a definite impact on your monthly mortgage price. Once you know which suburb, community or city area that fits your needs, it’s time to start the fun part – house shopping.
3. Don’t try to go without a realtor. It’s only when you’re selling a house that you pay up to 6% of the price in commission. On the buying end, a realtor will listen to your concerns and match you up with homes that would be a good fit.
4. Don’t get your hopes up too high, too soon. First-time home buying can be a heady experience and there’s no doubt that you will be excited. You should know, however, that circumstances can come up from behind and turn what you thought would be your dream house into a nightmare (a.k.a. money pit). Your realtor will arrange for a home inspection, and sometimes a closer look into the home can lead to problems that should prevent you from buying the home. Go through each stage with optimism, but try not to be too disappointed if complications arise along the way. Once it’s all behind you and you settle into your new home, all of your efforts will have been worth it. Not only will you enjoy tax credits, your investment should pay off down the road in the form of appreciation. What’s more, you’ll have your own little slice of the American Dream.
