Springtime is upon us and as it becomes warmer outside, you may be thinking about moving to a new home. You’ve thought about it all winter, and you have decided that you are ready for the change. Now what? We know that the preparation leading up to moving can be stressful, so we’ve put together this simple guide to help you better prepare for home-buying this Spring.

Hire A Real Estate Agent

The first step in your house-hunting process should be to find a real estate agent who has the qualifications and experience to find you a home that fits within your budget and includes your necessities.

At Charles Burt, we have a whole team of professionals waiting to help you find your dream home. You can contact an agent when you visit our website.

Prioritize Your Needs Vs. Your Wants

The next step for you will be to write down your wants and your needs. Something to keep in mind is that not every home will include everything from your list. When viewing the home options, evaluate your top priorities first and then figure out if you can incorporate the other ‘wants’ with some simple home remodeling.

Make Sure You Are Pre-Qualified

At Charles Burt, we make this step super simple. First Home Mortgage Company can help you make an informed decision as to the type of loan you need. There are many types of loans to consider – FHA, VA, Conventional, and even Bad Credit Loans. We’ll find the best loan for your situation. Fill out the form here, and we will be in contact with you shortly.

How Much Are You Willing To Spend

Finally, you’ll want to determine how much money you are willing to spend on a home. This will help your real estate agent narrow down the home options in your area to fit your budget and your priorities. When you have that number in mind, you’ve been pre-qualified, and you have your documents ready to go, it’s time to start the house-hunting process.
