Whats the first steps to looking for a house?I am currently tossing the idea around looking for my first home. I have no idea what I am doing. I know I need to be sure of what I can afford (obviously) and things of that nature but I'm clueless otherwise. I dont have amazing credit... it would be 'ok' at best I believe. Do I talk to a real estate agent first and tell them straight out and go from there or what other options should i maybe look into first? First time home buyer and I know I can handle a small downpayment but I was also told that there are possible programs to help me? Any info would be appreciated.
