Your lender needs to give you an estimate. Closing costs can range from 1-3% of the purchase price. Depending on the type of market you're in (i.e. seller's market vs buyer's market), you may or may not be able to negotiate for the seller to pay all or a portion or your closing costs. Your lender may also be able to cover some of the costs. (but for a price...usually a higher interest rate). Again, you need to sit down with your lender and review everything. ... more

Get pre-qualified right away, so that you know how much you can spend. You can also ask for an estimated break down on on costs associated with that loan amount- down payment, escrow fees, your monthly payment.
Contact your bank, credit union, or whichever institution you intend to use and get pre-qualified. It costs you nothing, and then you can begin to shop and can make an offer once you find the home of your dreams!

Tanya Ess-Young answered:
Are you the home owner or agent? If you are the home owner you will not be able to change any of this information. If you are the agent, you must first claim the listing. You can do this by searching for the home and claiming yourself as the listing agent underneath the photos, or you can add it to your current listings by scrolling over the my listings at the top right of any trulia agent page and selecting manage my listings or submit my listings. ... more

Areas are all about personal preferences, budgets, wants, needs, lifestyle; therefore consider researching areas of interest on your own, and take the time to visit more than once, then determine where your comfort level can best be reached; don't simply just entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you... ... more

Margaret Huntley answered:
I live in a condo in Bristol with 3 small children and I am very happy with my location and neighborhood. My neighborhood is safe, but that is not true for all of Bristol. It varies greatly. I second the opinion to check with the Police and hang/ take walks in the neighborhood. Ask people walking their dogs. Their response will also give you an idea of the friendliness of your potential neighbors. ... more
