One of the first things that a first time home buyer should do is create a list of priorities. Having a list of priorities will help both the home buyer and the real estate agent by setting clear guidelines. This list of priorities also helps the agent to understand the buyer’s lifestyle and intentions.
Most first time home buyers usually have the highest priority location. Here are some other items to think about:
- Have you been pre approved for a loan? How mauch can you qualify for?
- Are you looking to be in the home long term, or to sell it in a few years?
- Do you plan on expanding their family ?
- Are you looking for a recently remodeled home or something you can move in and update later ?
All of these questions are important for the agent and the search for the clients dream home!
