Steps to Buying a Home

Buying a home can be overwhelming.  It’s one of the biggest transactions you’ll ever register in your whole life. 

Whether you’re overwhelmed by the process or innocent enough to think it’s easy, I’ve outlined a few major steps to take.

1.       Build your credit.  Open a credit line and make regular payments.  This will help you establish your credit score and help you get a loan.   Get pre-qualified

2.       Determine how much you can afford and where you want to live.  Here’s a mortgage calculator that can help you figure out what will fit in your budget.  Drive around the city to find locations that sing to you.  Set up Louisville real estate alerts.

3.       Find a real estate agent you like and trust him or her.  Agents can help you navigate through the details of buying a home. 

Closing on a home can be stressful.  Use a professional to help you through with lots of industry knowledge.  We’ve got great agents (of course I think so – I hired them).  

Contact any one of them for a great first experience with a Red Edge agent.  To read more about the process, read all the steps here.
