The hoops a first-time home buyer must jump through can be daunting, to say the least. Where does one begin to get a handle on the most expensive purchase you will ever make?
This time in your life is exciting and exhilarating. You have a salary coming in, you have saved some cash, and you have beaten down the student loans or car loans to a manageable size. Your parents are proud, and your in-laws approve. You believe you can begin the home-buying process! There is so much information online. Where to start?
The FIRST step is to align yourself with a REALTOR®, a licensed professional by the Texas Real Estate Commission, who has experience in the Austin market and who can sit down with you and review the entire home-buying process, answering your questions, concerns, and mapping a course of action to the end game: the closing and funding of your first home!
The SECOND step is to speak with a mortgage lender who can quickly assess the financials for you. He can also tell you exactly what price range you qualify for and what you need to do to get the mortgage process going.
I have been a REALTOR® in Austin since 2000 and have worked with many young and not-so-young first-time home buyers. I pay particular attention to my client’s individual needs. You may have already searched school districts and have an idea of the exact neighborhood you want to be in, but you may not have spoken with a lender. I have a comprehensive list of lenders I have worked with for over ten years. Once the ball is rolling, time is of the essence. All the lenders I recommend are eager to work with you and will treat you with respect and do an excellent job for you.
