Tips For First Time Home Buyers

by Rachel Tavarez Realtor 02/10/2019

If you're an apartment renter ready to take the plunge into home ownership, there are a lot of reasons to be excited! Owning your own home does bring with it additional work and responsibilities, but the feeling of pride that accompanies it makes it all worthwhile!

Once you get used to the idea that "the buck stops here" and that there's no landlord to handle repairs and maintenance any more, it won't take long to get into the rhythm of being an established property owner. Here are a few tips to help ensure that your first experience with home ownership is a satisfying one.

    Get a good real estate agent.

    Hire an experienced property inspector.

    Visit a lot of different houses for sale

While your emotions will invariably play a role in your final choice, many other factors should also be taken into account, including the character of the neighborhood, proximity to conveniences and shopping, and the quality of the school district. Your real estate agent and/or the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development can provide you with a handy checklist for evaluating and comparing homes for sale.

Rachel Tavarez Realtor
I have had the pleasure of working with Sellers, Buyers and Investors since 2002. The rules of real estate are always changing. Whether you are Selling, Buying, Investing or behind in your mortgage payments, I would be glad to explain the new rules. As a Realtor, my responsibility is to provide information regarding market trends, inventory, financing and negotiate for my clients. I follow the market closely and am ready to inform my clients with up-to-the-minute information. My main objective is to be professional, courteous and have a smooth transaction by working closely with my clients while on "their" real estate journey. Referrals are always a sign of success. I believe referrals have to be earned -- that is my ultimate goal. Prior to becoming a Realtor, I was a Vice Present and Compliance Officer at a Los Angeles based private investment management company representing high net-worth individuals. I also believe that helping others in need is very important. I am a volunteer for the Shelter's Right Hand, which serves as a non-profit auxiliary of the Women's and Children's Crisis Shelter, Inc. which provides emergency and support services to Victims of Domestic Violence and their children. Visit their website, sheltersrighthand.org for more information. Please contact me by phone, e-mail or text to discuss YOUR real estate solutions. I look forward to meeting you. Have a pleasant day.
