Buying a New Home: The First Steps

When you’re thinking about buying a new home, the first steps in the process usually are:

  • Select an agent
  • Get pre-qualified for a home loan
  • Consider how much money you would like to spend to create a budget
  • Think about your family’s needs, wants and priorities for a new home and neighborhood.
  • Decide when you want to make your move


As a local real estate professional, I can help you along the way with all of these decisions, including finding the perfect neighborhood, establishing a realistic house budget, and finding you the perfect new home.

“…so you can feel confident that you’re asking the right questions…”

I’ll be sending you information on a regular basis that will help you work through this process so you can feel confident that you’re asking the right questions and taking all the steps you need to make your dream a reality.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly if and when you have questions.
