Do I have to go with the real estate agent the lender has picked out for me?

Answer
You have the right to work with any Real Estate agent that you choose.  A lender may make recommendations, but not necessary to work with his recommendation.  I suggest you interview a few agents until you feel comfortable with one enough to have them represent you throughout the transaction as a Buyer Broker.   As your agent you will be guided through the process through education and counsel. In this client level relationship the agent  will be able to help you with price, terms and negotiations when it comes to writing an offer.  Good Luck and Happy house hunting!

Should I do my final walk through before the seller vacates the property?

Answer
I always try to have the walk through when the house is vacated.  In that way it can be determined if everything that was supposed to convey with the house is there.  If you are not comfortable having a final walk through before the house is vacated, you do have the right to wait the sellers remove their personal property.

What should a first time home buyer do first?

Answer
I believe the first thing you should do is to contact a lender and get pre approved.  This will tell you what loan amount you qualify for. A lender will also explain the types of loans that are available and which is the best for you.   .  The next step is to find a REALTOR that you feel comfortable with and someone that can guide you through the process from how an agent can work with you all the way through closing.
