If you're thinking about buying your first home this year, here's my word of advice. Before anything else, think through these two things: your budget and your must-haves.
Determine the price range you feel comfortable with spending on a new home. For an objective point of view, meet with a trusted bank or mortgage lender to discuss and get pre-approved. Let me know if you need recommendations, and I can send a few over.
These are the non-negotiables for your new home. Need to stay in the same school district? Need a fenced yard for the dog or a guest room for grandma? Keep the list short, don’t include things that are easy to change (paint color, appliances, flooring, etc.), and share with your realtor upfront.
Buying a home is one of the best things you can do this year for your financial health. Reach out if you have questions or would like to talk more. I’m here to help!
