We can certainly understand that buying your first home can seem like a scary or daunting task. Having worked with many first time home buyers in the past, we also realize that there are going to be a lot more questions and a lot of more hand holding. We actually enjoy helping people buy their first home. It’s all completely worth it when we are able to be a part of the excitement that comes with buying your first home. You will only buy one first home in your life, and we would be honored to be a part of this important life event.
Having an experienced Realtor who understands the needs of a first time home buyer is critical. Some of the topics that we cover with first time home buyers during our initial Home Buying Consultation include the following:
- Your first home “wish list”
- Needs versus wants analysis
- Goals and reasons behind wanting to own a home
- The mortgage and loan process
- The overall home buying process
- Appreciation trends for various neighborhoods and areas
- Central Texas school accountability ratings
- A live MLS search to help identify housing criteria
We also provide all of our first time home buying clients a FREE best selling book (Your First Home). This is a must read for anyone aspiring to buy their very first home. Your First Home is packed with inspiring stories and the wisdom of thousands of successful first-time home buyers. Not only does it educate readers of the home ownership process in eight simple steps, it also teaches readers ways to overcome less-than-perfect credit and how to implement successful creative financing strategies. Feel free to read a few excerpts from the book below.
