Hopefully, tomorrow you’ll be surrounded by people you enjoy, having great conversation and eating way too much. In case you’re worried about running out of things to talk about before the food coma hits, I thought I’d present a topic you could bring to the table…first time home buyers.
Starting next week, I’m beginning a 90 day running dialogue on how to be an informed, educated and savvy first time home buyer. I would love to hear from you with questions, suggestions, stories from your first experience (good and bad), and things you did or will do differently the next time you buy a home.
You see, I am convinced there are lots of people out there who are ready to buy, but don’t know where to begin. Of course, no matter how much preparation we do there’s always the chance that something could go wrong in a real estate transaction. But for the most part, this should be an exciting, happy occasion and I work hard to make that a reality for all my buyers.
I’ve had lots of experience with first time home buyers over the last 13 years in real estate. I volunteer as much time as possible teaching “First Time Home Buyer” classes hosted by The Village Family Service Center because I am committed to this group of buyers. I believe that if I don’t take care of my buyers the first time around, why would they come back to me a second and third time?
So, here’s what’s coming over the next few months:
What should first time home buyers do first?
What kinds of loans are available to first time home buyers?
What are the benefits of a first time home buyer class?
How much will it cost for a first time home buyer to use a Realtor?
The list goes on as you can imagine. If you or someone you know has a question, please share it with me. Chances are, someone else has been wondering the same thing!
Tune in next week, but in the meantime, have a wonderful Thanksgiving day!
