5 Tips for Buying a Home

1. Identify the type of home you want
Are you looking for a new home or an existing one? What style of home do you like? What size home do you need?

2. Identify the features you want in your new home
Make a list of must-have features – garage, fireplace, first floor master, etc.

3. Identify neighborhoods based on your priorities
Choose three or four neighborhoods based on your priorities – schools, price, location, etc.

4. Meet with a Lender 
How much can you afford? As a general rule of thumb, lenders say  you can afford a home priced two to three times your gross income. If you are not a cash buyer, contact a lender to get pre-approved. This will help you determine the budget for your home. Having a pre-approval letter will also give you an edge in negotiation when you find your dream home.
