Are you a first time home buyer looking to purchase a new home? You are most likely wondering how you stack up against others and how you can still purchase with the way the housing market has been. Mortgage rates and sales prices have risen this year, so it costs more to buy than it did a year or two ago. But that doesn’t mean you are out for the count!, you don’t have to put your plans on hold!
Get with a trusted real estate company/professional like The Christy Buck Team and we can help create a strategy to get you in a home you will love. Plus, we partner with several lenders who may be able to help you get a very competitive interest rate, down payment help or more!
When looking for a home as a first time home buyer, here are a few other tips:
- Work with a Realtor to Prioritize Your “Wants/Needs” List- if you have a hard time finding the home you want that is in your budget and check all the boxes, you might need to re-prioritize what’s important. You may have to be a bit more flexible with certain items to be able to afford a home. Maybe there is something you could renovate later or something that’s more of a want rather than a need, we can help you! We want to get you close to what you truly want while still being conscious of your budget/location (which is most important)!
- Increase Your Search Area- Some areas may not have many homes in your price range, while others have more that could include most of the items you want/need on your checklist! If you are a remote worker, the location may not make as much of a difference as other items.
We know it can be tough out there for home buyers right now, which is why we want to make sure you get the help you need!
