Buying Your First Home in the North Hills

Few things in life are as monumental as buying your first home.

Buying a house has challenges that go beyond choosing a location or evaluating interiors. Harvest Real Estate will guide your through the key steps to making your first real estate purchase. Our experienced team specializes in working with first-time homebuyers and will make the experience as easy and enjoyable as possible.


Understand your expenses.

Homebuying has costs other than the price tag on the property: down payment, homeowners insurance, taxes, HOA dues, maintenance, utilities, closing costs, and moving costs are among the expenses.

We recommend that first-time homebuyers get acquainted with these costs first, even before setting a budget, to get a realistic understanding of what costs may come up. This will help you determine if you're ready for the long-term financial commitment.

Get pre-approved for a mortgage.

Unless you have enough cash to finance your purchase, you will need a loan. Many first-time homebuyers are afraid they will be declined, and therefore skip pre-qualification. If you don't know what your loan value will be before searching for homes, you might fall in love with a property outside of your price range.

Speak with lenders to get pre-qualified. Once you've been pre-approved, you have green light to start looking at homes.
