I also started the same way. I did have a full time job that allowed me to answer my phone and e-mails whenever needed though. Your flexibility is going to be you biggest obstacle.

Getting pre-approved and selecting a realtor are all the correct answers to getting started. Once you have found that dream house, you need to protect your interests by having it inspected. The Home Inspection will provide you with the information you need about the property, to make the important decisions as you go forth with negotiations to closing. I provide computer generated reports; including digital pictures of any deficiencies and arrange for other inspections you might desire. Covering the five counties of Southeastern Pennsylvania.
