Question by  angelzkissus (9)

Can you give me some good tips to keep in mind when I'm buying a house?

It's my first time.

Find a good real estate agent to assist you. Ask friends/family for referrals. Be clear about what you want, not only in terms of your budget, but with regard to location, style, bedrooms/baths, yard, garage, fireplace, etc. Make list of what you MUST have as well as things you'd like to have and things you don't want.

Determine how much you can afford before you start searching. Get pre-qualified for a loan. When you make an offer, make it contingent on passing an inspection and financing.

Use a buyers agent, invest in a home inspection, and make sure to stay in the house for a few hours before making a decision.

Make sure you have your house inspected by a profesional prior to purchase. Go with the inspector and perform your own inspection while they do theirs. Take into consideration your utility costs and other expenses along with your house payment. Make sure you get a fixed interest rate loan.
