Steps every prospective buyer should take.

  1.  Search and Discover: View listings and discover what types of homes you can get in different price ranges and look at homes in your favorite neighborhoods, and review statistics and reports on home values.
  2. Do the math and your required homework: You need to know what you can afford, the types of loans available and how what you can afford will affect your home search.
  3. Dive in and have fun: Go to open houses, make appointments and see as many homes as possible. Before making an offer, you’ll need to know the market inside and out. The more homes you see, the more you will know about your local real estate market, and the more confidence you will have when that dream house comes along.
