First Time Home Buyers Checklist for Houston County, Georgia
Ensuring you love your home and it’s the perfect fit for you is our definition of success. So here is how we make sure our first-time buyers have a great experience:
Purchase Price: The importance of this first step cannot be understated. I help you to determine what you can afford and want to spend. Therefore, I will only show you the best properties in your price range.
Financial Planning: I recommend organizing your finances and being as debt free as possible, as this will affect how much you get approved for. Also, there are extra costs concerning the purchase of a home that many first-time buyers don’t realize, such as closing costs, property inspection fees, and homeowners insurance. I can advise you on everything you need to know regarding your first home purchase. An additional bonus is that less debt is good for the credit score and stress levels!
Mortgage Pre-approval: Finding your dream home and losing out while waiting for financing would be devastating. I will help you plan ahead by connecting you with a reputable, speedy lender.
Make Your List: I want to show you the types of homes that fit your needs. So I will work with you to make a list of ‘must haves’ and ‘would like to have’ features. This way, I can guide you on what is realistic in your price range and find that perfect home for you and your family.
Future Thinking: For many people, purchasing a home is a long-term purchase. This means buying a home that fits you now and into the foreseeable future. I will consider family size, work from home, and upcoming plans when choosing a house to buy.
