Tips for 1st time home buyers.

1.See what you can afford-How much do you spend on rent? Use this as a starting point and meet with a lender.
2.Save for closing costs- Closing cost are fees included at the closing of a real estate transaction, can include a number of charges such as appraisal and attorney fees, recording fees, title and escrow charges. Typically 3-4% of the purchase price.
3.Mange debts & down payments-There are lots of flexible loan products available. You no longer need 20%
4.Identify neighborhoods- Housing prices vary greatly from city to city, and even block to block. Make sure the neighborhoods you like meet your needs.
5.Go local- Work with a local lender or Realtor, this will help streamline the process and make the the purchase less stressful.
6.Think longterm- Don’t just think about what you want now; try to visualize your life down the road and make sure this house fits the vision.
