3 Common Mistakes to Avoid When Buying Your Joint Base Charleston Home

Here are three predicaments first-time home buyers may encounter along the purchase journey:

  1. Going it alone. It’s great to do some online home shopping and you might see homes in neighborhoods you’re considering and think a quick visit can’t hurt. Your first step should be talking with a real estate agent, or lender to help you understand if you’re ready to buy. You need an ally who knows the system inside and out.

     

  2. Looking at homes you can’t afford.  Home buyers need to get pre-approved before you look at homes. Being pre-approved for a certain amount doesn’t mean you have to spend that much. Decide how much you’re comfortable paying for your mortgage each month.

     

  3. Not comparing mortgage quotes.To get the best loan terms, you should shop around and compare quotes from different lenders..
