First Time Home Buyer
What is the first step in the home buying process?rjc
A fixed-rate mortgage has a stable interest rate throughout the loan term, while an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) typically starts with a lower rate but can change periodically, potentially leading to higher payments.
A home inspection is an assessment of a property’s condition. While not mandatory, it’s highly recommended to uncover any potential issues before closing. It can also help you negotiate repairs or a lower price.
Consider decluttering, making necessary repairs, and staging your home to make it more appealing to potential buyers. Your agent can provide guidance on what improvements will yield the best return on investment.
The first step is typically to have your home professionally appraised and priced appropriately. Your agent will help you determine the right listing price based on market conditions and your home’s features.
Your agent will create a marketing plan that may include professional photography, online listings, open houses, and social media promotion. They will also utilize their network and the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) to reach a broad audience.
