Engage a RealEstate Agent

RealEstate agents can work with buyer as well as the seller. It is very important that you engage a dedicated, candid realestate agent with you on your journey to buying your first house. There are many aspects that you need to consider while buying a house which you might have missed otherwise. Buyers are generally confined with list of must-have and must-not-have like number of bedrooms, portico, attached garage etc. But your agent will alert you on issues which might not come to your mind like roofing problem, leakages, furnace issue etc. An agent can also give you authentic reliable data on neighborhood’s demographics, crime rates, schools etc. If you do this on your own it would take a lot of your time. Also, with their experience, agents are much better negotiator than you. They are not emotionally attached with the deal, so they think rationally and come up with the best deal for you. And then reviewing and understanding the loads of papers that is involved in a real estate deals, your agent will be very familiar with all these paper works and will walk you through all these very easily.

Donot exceed your budget

Never enter into a mortgage agreement which is higher than your budget. When you buy a house its not just the cost of the house , you will spend a considerable amount on the décor of the house as well, which might dry-up your savings for sometime. There can be some unforeseen incidence which might cut down your monthly income and then you fall into a situation where you would find it extremely difficult to pay your high mortgage amount. So its always better to get something closer to your budget and stay comfortably.

Buy a house which has little room for alteration to fit your need

To me this point is equally important like the previous points. Do not just focus on your current requirements while buying a house, as your needs might change in few years when you plan to extend your family. Regardless of your current situation get a house with a bit more space than you need right now.
