Step 1. Get prequalified for a mortgage. Step 2. Find a good REALTOR to work for you as a Buyer's Agent. Do not search for homes online. Your Realtor will create a search for you in the local MLS and email you listings that are available. Sites like Trulia & Zillow have very outdated info.
If you are a first time buyer, find an agent who works with a lot of first time buyers and who will take the time to walk you through the process.
Good luck!... more
