Here are a few tips for first time home buyers:

1. Find out what you can afford.

Before you make contact with a lender you need to decide how much you are comfortable paying each month for your home. After you know this amount Tim can help you determine how much home you can buy with that monthly payment.

2. Find out what is available.

Once you know how much home you can buy now it’s time to see if there are homes available in your price range. Tim can set up a search and e-mail you some homes in your price range. Each home will come with multiple pictures and an interactive map of the area.

3. Choose a neighborhood.

Once you know what is available, jump in the car and check out the neighborhoods. Visit the areas at different times of the day to see if this is a place you can see yourself living in.

4. Meet your lender.

Once you know there are homes available in your price range and in an area you like, it’s time to meet your lender and get pre approved for a home loan. If you don’t have a lender Tim can recommend a lender he knows and trusts.
