Have you been Pre-Approved yet? This should be your first step so you can figure out what you would be eligible for, but more importantly to figure out how much you are comfortable spending every month. Your second step would be to sit down with a realtor and go over exactly what you will need in your future home, your "musts", and also your "wants", things you can do without.

Hi Jade:
To maximize your time and minimize confusion and frustration, you really should decide on one borough or the other, before you begin your search in earnest. As you know, both the Bronx and Brooklyn are huge areas, with tens of thousands of homes (if not more), so I'd say that is your first logical step. If you chose to stay in the Bronx, I will be happy to serve as your agent.

Why not simply consider working with an agent of your own. If purchasing with a mortgage, be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously.

Good morning Jade,

First steps:

1. Meet with a Local Mortgage Banker to get prequalified for mortgage financing. The Mortgage Banker will review all facets of your loan request to answer your questions with regards to the types of loans and maximum loan amounts you could qualify for.

2. Get a referral to a good, local, real estate attorney. Call the attorney, retain the attorney so you have her information handy when you make an offer. Having that information at time of offer helps you demonstrate to the Seller how serious you are, and they will consider your offer with more interest.

3. Line up a Home Inspector. A good home inspector will scare the heck out of you: that's what you pay him for! But you'll concentrate on the fundamentals of the property: roof free of leaks, plumbing, heating and electrical up to code and in good working order. Again, when you make an offer and you have your Home Inspector ready to go, your offer will be considered with much more interest by a Seller because you truly have your "ducks in a row" and your preparation demonstrates your serious attitude about conducting the purchase transaction in a timely manner.

4. Find an experienced Local Realtor who works in your desired shopping area. A serious pro Realtor will refuse to show you homes until you are Prequalified for mortgage financing. Don't take offense! That Realtor doesn't want you to be disappointed and wants you to have a smooth experience as you shop for your new home.

Put together your Team of real estate professionals and shop 'til you drop!

Good luck!
