The most important thing is for you to start by contacting an agent that specializes with First Time Buyers. There are many grant programs, mortgage assistance and interest rate options that differ for a First Time Buyer. An agent that specializes with First Time Buyers will be more informed on the current programs available for you.
Also, it is important to research any reviews or information about the agent from previous clients. You want an agent that you click with. You will spend a great deal of time together and you must be with an agent that you feel comfortable with.
