We’ve all bought things that we’ve later regretted: Be they those high-waisted jeans, pumpkin-spiced potato chips (they exist!), or the $189 electronic toothbrush your dentist said you had to have. At least the money wasted wasn’t a life changer. But what if you paid too much for a car and later realized you couldn’t afford it? That can amount to a significant financial hit. Now just think about the home-buying process. It’s more complicated than all those other purchases combined.
If you’re a first-time homebuyer, buying a house can be positively overwhelming. With an agent by your side to guide you through the process, you’ll make it through just fine — but you might want to be aware of these rookie mistakes. If you’re searching for homes for sale in San Francisco, CA, where the market is ultracompetitive, making one of these mistakes could end up costing you big time.
