Your First Steps

Your first step to buying a home is to ask yourself - "What is my main motivation?"

  • To stop paying rent? 
  • To start building equity? 
  • To have a place of my own? 
  • To raise a family? 
  • To entertain business associates? 
  • To have more space?

Next...make a specific list  of "must haves" and "want to haves." for your prospective new home. Make a list of acceptable and ideal locations.

Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to and from work.

Think about home styles. 

  • How much space do you need? 
  • Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? 
  • Consider the  size and type of property. 
  • Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? 
  • Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. 
  • Consider how long you intend to reside in this new home.
