Hi there, buying a home is for many people, one of their biggest financial transactions ever. A buyer should definitely get a professional to assist them through the process. Therefore, the first thing to do is to find a good real estate agent. Ask for referrals of good agents from friends or colleagues. The next thing is to find a loan agent to get you pre-approved for a loan. After that, your agent will lead you through the rest of the process. Good luck!
