I dove into the world of purchasing my first home this year. I want to share the process that I took so you have a clear path to buying your first home. If you’re considering buying a house, you probably heard the horror stories about how long and difficult the process is. Sure, buying a house isn’t exactly a walk in the park, but there is nothing to be afraid of. If you take some basic steps, the purchase is a breeze. The hardest part of the deal is just choosing what home you want, and making sure not to drift outside your budget. Trust me, I know those can be hard, especially with HGTV on nonstop during the search.
I separated this post into sections to make everything more manageable for you. Working in bite-sized chunks is the best way to go when buying your first home. By following through this process and making sure to do things in the right order, you will be miles ahead.
To make sure you see every step I took during my process, you can download a free checklist for buying your first home at the bottom of this post. Combine that checklist with the knowledge here, and you will be a pro-buyer in no time. Even better, you learned how to do it yourself!
