1) What is the first step in the home buying process?
Contact a local bank or mortgage broker and get pre-qualified for a loan. They will help you determine the correct price range for a house that you can afford, and what type of loan product will be best for you.
2) Should I find an agent to represent me when buying a home?
When you select a Realtor to help you find a home, this Realtor is called a buyer’s agent. The agent will be working on your half, despite the fact that their commission is paid by the seller. This Realtor will guide you throughout the entire process all the way to closing
