Ready to buy your first home?Well maybe you are closer than you think.Although many first time homebuyers begin the process with shopping (because let’s face it that’s the fun part), there are a few steps first that will prepare you to buy.
Talk to a Realtor. Begin a relationship with someone who will advocate for you. They are your coach, your resource and your guide through one of your biggest life decisions.
Talk to a lender. Even if your credit needs some work or you are a few months away from pulling the trigger, talking with a lender begins a conversation about the targets you will need to meet, the money you will need to have in savings and the loan that will be the best fit for you.
Time your move. Are you renting? When is your lease up? It may take a few times out with your Realtor to find your next home. It also may take 30 or more days to close. Discuss this with your Realtor to help find the right timing for writing the offer and setting the close date.

Spring is right around the corner...Punxsutawney Phil (America's favor
"Jessica Friedland is amazing, not only as a Real Estate Professional but as a human being. Her ability to listen and discern my needs from start to finish was so far above and beyond my expectations that I can only say she blows every other professional I have ever dealt with (in any field) completely off the radar. She treated me as if I were her only client while juggling multiple listings, consistently returned my calls within minutes, and was able to negotiate a deal for me thousands of dollars under the asking (and appraisal) price including a home warranty which I have already used, again saving me thousands of dollars! I have never had the pleasure of working with anybody who works so tirelessly on my behalf. Her sunny disposition and positive attitude brightened my day with each encounter and I consider myself wildly blessed to have stumbled across her name. Needless to say, the entire process of purchasing my home from the moment I initiated my first call to her through closing (and beyond) was seamless. Thank you Jessica!"
