Buying your first home is inevitably one of the most nerve-wracking, but also exciting experiences! While purchasing a home is extremely rewarding, it also comes with great responsibility.

Heres some tips and tricks to make the process less stressful:

1. Check your credit score, and learn about your credit. Credit is a huge factor that goes into buying a home, as well as basically every other big purchase you finance throughout your life.

2. Get Pre-approved. A mortgage lender can help you estimate what your price range is before house-hunting. Knowing your mortgage options will help save you time, and find your ideal home.

3. Find a Realtor. House-hunting is an extremely exhausting process, that will go a lot smoother with a professional that has experience. Realtors help first time home buyers prevent simple (but costly) mistakes, legal issues, while finding them exactly what their looking for.

4. Financial Preparation. Its important for first time home buyers to be aware that owning a home comes with expenses besides just the mortgage. It’s important to have money aside for things like furnishings, appliances, repairs etc.

5. Don’t obsess over the one that got away! If you missed out on a home, it wasn't meant to be. Trust your instinct and your realtor, and you WILL find your dream home!
