Hello Akracevaya,

I purchased a home in Germantown in 12/2010: my search area was Silver Spring, Bethesda, Rockville, Germantown, etc. I really liked my realtor, Luis Martins. He was organized, responsive, and knew alot about my target areas bc he is also a homeowner and landlord in the area. In 2010 his team was #3 Remax team in Maryland. If you use him, tell him Maria S. sent you!

If you haven't been pre-qualified, your first step should be to talk to a loan officer who can help you to get pre-qualified for a home purchase. Have you determined a comfortable payment?  Be sure to take into account the taxes on different homes, they can vary widely.   

You also may want to narrow down your search a bit.  There are a lot of great homes in all of those areas.  You will want some help to determine your needs and your wants....e.g bedrooms, baths, yard?, are schools important?  What about commute? transportation?  near parks?  near shopping?  Is this a home you want to live in for a few years or forever.

There are also some first time buyer grants available in PG County, depending on the area.

All the best in your search.

I am a license Realtor in Washington, DC and Maryland with a GRI designation,  who work closely with first time homebuyers.  You can email me with specific questions.  Do you need downpayment assistance, 203K for a foreclosed property, are you willing to wait several months for a short sale approval?  These are some of the questions you should ask.  Read some of the reviews I have on Zillow.  Hopefully, we can work together from beginning to end.

Don't hire any agent too incompetent to even read and follow the good neighbor policy on here.
