Thanks for the question. Well, the very first thing to do, it to make a decision on the area you want to live in. Once you are there, then you must find out exactly what you can comfortably afford to buy. You can go to the bank that you normally use and speak to a loan officer there..or..you can interview buyer agents who should be able to refer you to several excellent loan officers. After the financial details are taken care of, you can start working with a good buyer agent who will walk you through the process.
Best of Luck to you!
Not all agents are accustomed to doing a Consultation with Buyers so look for one who is familiar with the concept. You need an agent with whom you feel comfortable as the HomeBuying Process takes a fair amount of time and you may experience periods of great joy, anxiety and trepidation. Try reading some blog posts by local agents. (Active Rain, Trulia, etc.)
Remember to have fun as you go through the process! Buying a home is a happy occasion!
Furthermore an Agent That Will Go the "Extra Mile "to Make Sure Your Best Your Best Interest Is Represented.
That experience agent would recommend you to go to mortgage broker or bank to first prequalified to see where you're purchasing ability is. Once that's established your agent would curtail your search within those parameters, so you stay within your budget.
