Step 1 – Have a Buyer Consultation with Your Realtor
A buyer consultation is vital for any first time home buyer because, it will enable you to get to know your Realtor and insure that they will purchase a home that’s right for you.
Besides helping you to get to know your Realtor you will also be able to get a complete breakdown of the entire home buying process that includes:
- Looking at homes
- Writing offers
- The escrow process
Having a buyer consultation with your Realtor should take about an hour, but it’s a necessary first step to successfully navigating the “waters” of the home buying process.
Step 2 – Confirm Your Financing
Before moving forward with submitting an offer on a home you should make sure that you’ve fully handled the financing process by doing the following:
- Meet with your lender
- Get pre-approved for a mortgage
Once you’ve confirmed that you will have financing to purchase a home you can successfully review Orange County homes for sale in your price range and have confidence that you will be able to win the home of your dreams.
