Quote from a former client: “My husband and I were 25 when we thought about buying our first home. However, we felt there were many things that held us back. We didn’t make enough money, we had too much debt, where would we find a house…is this even something we could do?
Susie sat down with us and walked us through the process from start to finish about buying a home. She had recommendations for mortgage brokers (private or banks). She walked us through the application to prequalify and then she spent time with us looking at house after house as we tried to decide what was important to us. Turns out some of the stuff we thought we wanted, we didn’t need. On the flip side, some of the stuff we never considered became deal breakers.
It all felt like a whirlwind, but we went from not knowing what we wanted or how to proceed to signing our mortgage in no time! We love our first home.”
I hear this kind of story all the time. People hesitate to buy their first home because of all the unknowns. They ask the same questions as the couple above: do I make enough? What about my debt? How do I even start?
The answers are easier than you think. The easiest and simplest way to begin this process is to sit down with me and talk all this through. We can meet for coffee while I give you my handout on tips and tricks for a first-time home buyer. This is a no-obligation meeting, but it’s just to help you have some action steps in mind to start the process before we begin looking at houses.
