Finding a well reputable agent to sit down and have a buyers counciling meeting to pre condition you about the process of home buying so that you can feel more confident in the when moving forward.
Also to start speaking with lenders to see what you are comfortable with for your monthly payments. Feel free to call me with any questions

Definitely put the word out to your friends and family that you are buying and see if they can recommend a reputable realtor. It is a wonderful time to buy a home and being a first time home buyer, it is best to have an agent that is in your corner and reputable. Congratulations!

The First thing you do IS NOT run out and just use any ol Lender/Agent....

Why? Because this is a very Large Business Transaction and the Selection of an Lender/Agent is an Important one for a lot of different reasons..

Select wisely and take the time to be sure you find the Best Lender/Agent for you...
Become informed..be smart with your money...if there is a good Deal be able to recognize it, if there is a Bad Deal be able to recognize it

Here are some places to start..Check out the info, resources, options you have available to protect yourself..to find what you are looking for..Good Luck


I would suggest you give this Fed. Gov. Site a look, it has all the Current Fed Housing Loans (FHA/Vet/USDA ect.) and you search for specific information, compare options, or take a short questionnaire to determine your eligibility for each program.....Fed Loans..Housing

I would suggest you read the 9 Steps to Homebuying on the Hud site as they are an excellent guide & Resource plus links to your Local Homebuyer Programs....

First time home buyer? Congratulations! Yes there is FHA loans that require as little as 3.5 another program is called the CHDAP this program is only .50 down. Be sure to get a home inspection. Hire a professional Agent to represent you. There lots of programs each invidual need is different your agent will know how to direct you.
