It’s fun to look at online real estate listings, and exciting to be searching for your first home.  But excitement can quickly turn to shock if you make some common mistakes as you start the home buying process. 

This article from the Philadelphia Inquirer covers some of the most common missteps.  For example, don’t start looking before you pre-qualify for a mortgage, and be sure to talk to more than one lender.  Pre-qualifying lets you know how much home you can really afford, and lenders may offer different interest rates.  Be sure to take good care of your credit, long before you begin thinking about a home purchase.  As far as selecting your ideal home, try not to focus just on the style and design.  Be sure to give the location just as much consideration.  For more detail – and more mistakes to avoid – check out the article here.  Even better, us guide you every step of the way.  Give us a call!
