Mary Beth Burgstahler provides her 8 Steps to Buying a Home.
Get Pre-approved! You'll want to know how much you can afford as so not to be disappointed in the long run.
Create your search criteria and start viewing homes! Remember, there is NO perfect home, only the perfect home for YOU.
Write an offer! Talk to your agent about how to make your offer come out on top. A good agent will counsel you through each detail.
Schedule a home inspection! This will give you a chance to find out if there is anything significantly wrong with the home.
Get the appraisal set as soon as possible! This is your lender's duty, but keep in close contact with them about it.
Schedule the final walk through! Your agent will take care of this. Most schedule the day before closing.
Attend closing! This is the day you actually buy and own your home! Be prepared to go over lots of paperwork. Its worth it!
