An agent will help your prioritize what your needs vs wants are when buying a home. With a clear stragegy, everyone has a better experiacne.
Understand the Process - Don't start learning the steps when you are ready to make an offer. Get INFORMED early and ask your agent to go over with you how it all goes. Then, when it is time to make an offer, you won't be overwhelmed by the unknown. At least know what these terms mean:
- Attorney review
- Inspection period
- Mortgage contingency
- Closing costs
