As a first time home buyer you have the opportunity of buying your first home with as little as 3.5% down payment. First step would be to get yourself pre-approved from a loan officer. This will give you an idea of what price range properties you should be looking at. Interview a few Realtors and choose one who you think is a perfect match.

Hi Cristin, You should start with a good mortgage person to qualify you. I know a very good one & would be happy to share her name & number with you.
That is really step one with anyone starting their home search. Step two is to have a very experienced agent to guide you through the buying process.
Let me know if I can help you.
