Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions anybody can make in their life. Also, the buyer is usually committed to a 30 year mortgage and needs to keep up with the monthly mortgage payments.
Some of the basic steps in getting started with the buying process is the financing aspect, like getting qualified for a FHA, Conventional or VA loan. Getting a CMA (comparable market analysis) before making an offer on a property is important to make sure the offer and listed price is within the market value of that area. In addition the buyer needs to take into consideration other important details like insurance and taxes. Also how is the condition of the property, as you will need an inspection. Picking the right Real estate agent to represent you in this transaction, can make all the difference with buying your dream home.
