As a first time home buyer you have already taken the first step – obtained your mortgage pre-approval.
Now you must select your real estate professional to assist you in the search process. [In Brevard County, Florida, call me at 321-693-3850!]
You have a budget in mind. You have an area in mind. You have a realistic limit based on your financial circumstances.
As you go off to look at properties.....
keep in mind that quite possibly within your budget you may not be able to
get those granite counter tops, that gated community, that 3 car garage. Those amenities may have to wait until you move up with your second or third home purchase.
It is now that you, the buyer, must remain realistic. It is up to your real estate agent to show properties that are withing your budget.
It is up to everyone to manage expectations!
