Five Common First-Time Homebuyer Mistakes

They don’t ask enough questions of their lender and miss out on the best deal.

They don’t act quickly enough to make a decision and someone else buys the house.

They don’t find the right agent whose willing to help them through the homebuying process.

They don’t do enough to make their offer look good to a seller.

They don’t think about resale before they buy. The average first-time buyer only stays in a home for four years.

If you are a renter and NOT working with an agent, please complete the form below for a list of properties.

If you are a buyer, please submit your "wish list" of must-haves. 

If you are a seller, your address is sufficient for me to pull closed sale comparables. 

If you are a Housing Choice or subsidized housing participant, please enter your expected move in date, your Housing Authority, your voucher size, the voucher expiration date, TTP or S8/Rent Burden figures. I will then send you a list of available rental properties, photos and qualifications. Upon receipt of your selections, I will coordinate showing dates/times.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the overwhelming demand for rentals, we can not hold a home without a refundable good faith deposit. I am a Realtor® not a scam artist. I will not lose my license over your refundable good faith deposit. Once you are approved, I bring the deposit to your move-in and perform a walk-through with the owner/agent. If you are denied, we can apply your deposit to your next choice OR holding Broker will refund it. If you do not want to secure your deal, I can not help you. No one is holding homes in this HOT marketplace with just your voucher. Trust me. Not happening. I am getting several offers overnight on listings.
