Home buying can be a time consuming process......
Don't be worried about numbers and how much time your agent is spending with you. It sounds as if you are making progress.....remember that each home that you view brings you closer to making a decision, even if it is the very first home you saw weeks ago.....
A good agent will understand and remain committed to the process.
Unfortunately there is no magical number of homes to preview .Also, viewing too many homes in one day can be overwhelming and difficult to remember each home. There are some great tools out there that your agent can provide to help organize you during your touring, they allow you to keep notes on everything from amenities of the home to location, schools etc. it's great to start your home search by driving different neighborhoods so you can get more familiar with your options from price points, size, architect styles, etc. The more educated you are the more prepared you are to write a fair and realistic offer on the home you want.
The current market is very low in inventory, when you find that perfect home don't delay, present your offer as clean and strong as you can afford. Be strategic as well with how you write your offer, your up against tough competition as it is a sellers market even with the historic low interest rates. Buyers are out in full force with the low rates making the affordability a reality but with sellers still on the fence scared to sell you will have to work a bit harder to find and obtain your new home.
All dreams are possible, buying your first home is amazing and you will thank yourself for years to come!
Go find your home, congrats!
