First Time Home Buyer In St Louis
This is a great place to start!
As a first time home buyer in St Louis you probably have a ton of questions. How do I start? What should I know? How much can I afford? Do I really need a real estate agent, if so, when?
Those are all great questions. I am happy to answer those questions either in person over coffee, over the phone, via email…or feel free to just read on and see what you discover.
Being a first time home buyer in St Louis city also has its own uniqueness. There are many different neighborhoods in the city, each with its own personality and price ranges. I have had many clients that loved where they were currently renting, but couldn’t afford a house in that specific neighborhood. One of the most important things to remember as a first time home buyer in st louis is to keep an open mind. There are probably a few neighborhoods that would be a good match and will serve you well.
There are certainly pros and cons to renting and buying. But once you have idea that you are ready to buy, then it’s time to start assembling your team. Your two main points of contact that will take you from start to finish are your lender and your real estate agent.
If you have a lender, or someone that you want to use, go ahead and contact them. The next point of contact will be a real estate agent to help set up a search and guide you through the process. The agent can also be a great point of contact if you don’t have a lender in mind, most agents have a couple lenders they can refer you to.
Next, read through the most common questions when starting the process. Trust me, you will have a ton of other questions as you go through the process and any good agent will take the time to explain everything. These are just the questions to get you started.
