There are a lot of choices in Camden County. Sounds like you are the type of person who likes to approach things in a logical organized manner. The first step is to meet for a Buyer's Consultation. I will prepare a customized booklet with information about the entire home-buying process. We will also talk about your with list and needs for your new home. My client's love it!
Here are a few testimonials from recent First-time buyers:
"It was such a pleasure working with Rob! Being first time home buyers, my girlfriend and I were a bit intimidated by the whole process. Rob definitely made sure that all of our questions were answered and all of our worries attended to. He's a patient, easy to talk to, and dedicated individual who kept the house hunting process fun and exciting. Can't wait to work with him again with any future real estate business we may have." - MC
"Robert is an expert when it comes to homes in South Jersey. He is also very generous with his time and knowledge and will not stop until you find the house that fits your wants and needs. He stuck with me for 6 months until I found my home and now I just moved in! Thanks Rob!" - RH
"Finding our home wasn't easy. We had many pitfalls during our quest for the perfect house. He was always there and when we wanted to give up, he always has an encouraging word. Anything we needed or had questions about if he could help us he did. I would definitely recommend him." SP

I do recommend to get an idea of home much home you can be pre-approved first. I can certainly assist you with that. Then you and your boyfriend will have an idea of how much they will give you. I will be happy to take you and him to see homes within the price range you feel confortable with.

By the way I have a great starter home in Stratford!
I would recommend you begin by looking on http://www.greatschools.org to familiarize yourself with some of the school districts. Also, it is HIGHLY recommended that you hire a Realtor. It is usually of no cost to you in South Jersey as the Seller typically pays any commission.
It would be much easier at our first consultation over coffee to go over what to look for and what your wish list is, but some immediate things you want to keep in mind are property taxes, condo fees (if you are considering condos), fencing, proximity to neighbors, flooding, and the slew of mechanical systems (electrical, HVAC, plumbing, roof/siding/windows).
Feel free to reach out to me if you and your boyfriend would like to grab a cup of coffee.
