What are some tips for first-time home buyers?

Asked by Trulia, San Francisco, CA Sun Mar 4, 2012

Can you share some of your top advice or tips for home buyers?

Help the community by answering this question:


1) Get pre-approved for a loan. This way you will know how much home you can afford. It will make the home shopping experience more pleasant if you know what you can afford.

2) Hook up with a a Realtor who is local and knows the market. A large percentage of our inventory are foreclosed or short sale homes and you have to write your offer in a way where it will be accepted.

3) Inventory is short in Fresno and Clovis right now so do not be discouraged if you get bid out of the first couple of homes you put offers on.

Good luck!
