First time home buyers are one of my favorite buyers to work with because the process is so exciting for them and me. These buyers also have so many questions and are so unfamiliar with the home buying process. So, let me get you started with the basic process of buying your first home in the Greenville SC area.
Determine Your Budget
The first thing a first time home buyer will want to do is get an idea of exactly how much of a home you can buy. First step, talk with a good mortgage broker or banker to find out what your budget should be. It’s easy to overextend yourself and with such a large purchase so you want to be sure you keep things realistic.

Second, contact a realtor who knows the area. While you are doing that, why not contract a realtor who is an exclusive buyer’s agent so you are sure you have someone working in your best interest? Then meet with that realtor and establish your goals and criteria.
Third, start looking at homes! This is the fun part because so many things can change in this process. First time home buyers in Greenville SC have found that the market can move very fast with some homes disappearing within hours of coming on the market!
Buy the Home that is Right for You
Fourth, make an offer on the home you have decided to purchase. Sometime this can happen very quickly or sometimes it can take weeks to occur. Guess what happens after your offer is accepted? Well, that is a whole other story. There is a process for selecting the right real estate agent and a process for moving towards closing. I’ve helped numerous first time home buyers purchase homes in the Greenville SC area. Please allow me to be your exclusive buyer’s agent for the most important purchase you will make in your life. 864-335-8490!
