Beginner's Guide to Home Buying 

Many first-time home buyers today are facing brutally competitive markets that favor sellers. That means buyers need to bring their A game. Especially if you're a newbie. The prospect of buying a home can be exciting, but at the same time, it is a high-stakes investment that would make anyone feel anxious. Even if you have a dream home in mind, sometimes your budget won’t allow it, or perhaps your local market is overcrowded and lacks inventory. These are just a few examples of stressors that can cast a shadow of doubt on what otherwise should be an exciting process. However, home buyers can minimize stress and anxiety by having a well-researched action plan. The home buying process can be quite pleasant, especially for those who know what to expect and prepare in advance. In this class you will meet a mortgage lender, title company representative, home inspector, and accountant. You can ask any question about the buying process for homes, condos, duplexes or town homes. Remember, "You are better to be prepared for an opportunity and it not appear, than to have an opportunity appear and not be prepared."
