✔ Be ready to move. 

It's very common for home buyers to miss out on the first home they wish to purchase because they don't act quickly enough.

✔ Find a trusted partner. 

It's absolutely vital that you find a real estate professional who understands your goals and who is ready and able to guide you through the home buying process. 

✔ Make a good offer. 

Remember that your offer is very unlikely to be the only one on the table. Do what you can to ensure it's appealing to a seller. 

✔ Factor maintenance and repair costs into your buying budget.

Even brand-new homes will require some work. Don't leave yourself short and let your home deteriorate.

✔ Think ahead.

It's easy to get wrapped up in your present needs, but you should also think about reselling the home before you buy.

✔ Develop your home/neighborhood wish list.

Prioritize these items from most important to least.

✔ Select where you want to live.

Compile a list of three or four neighborhoods you'd like to live in, taking into account nearby schools, recreational facilities, area expansion plans, and safety.
