You've decided you are ready to live the American dream and buy your first home. The only problem is, you aren't quite sure where to start or what to do as a first-time home buyer. Here's a list of four people you should contact when you are looking to buy a house for the first time.
A Mortgage Company
This is who you need to call to find out just how much you can afford to spend on your new home. They will match you with a lender to obtain the best interest rate and terms, working the ins and outs to get you into your first home.
A Home Inspector
Buying a home is quite possibly the biggest investment you will make in your lifetime. Having a good home inspector will ensure you are making the right decision when choosing your new home. The Home Inspector will prevent you from buying a home that might have repairs that could make your first home buying experience less than thrilling.
An Insurance Company
Securing homeowner's insurance is a must before closing on your new home. Calling around for the best deal is key when choosing your insurance company but make sure you look into the company's credentials, read reviews and ask your friends who they use as a good referral.
