As a Realtor, I come across this quite a bit. People know that they would like to buy a home but they have no idea where to start. They are overwhelmed. They need advise. Well the good news is that its really not as bad as you think! I bought my first home about a year and a half ago and was super nervous. Luckily, I had a good Realtor who helped me and explained everything to me. Here are the basics:
1.) Do your homework--- Have an idea of what you want in a home and areas you would consider. 2.) Get Prequalified--- So important! A lender can give you advise on so many things but the best part is that they can let you know what price range you should be looking for and if you have issues with your credit, they can advise you on what to do to fix it. Finally, they will be the ones to get you that ever important Prequalification letter :) 3.) Go see a Realtor---- Why look on your own when we can do all the work for you?! We can advise you on pretty much everything and have access to so many more listings because we have access to the MLS.
Those are the highlights! Do your homework, get prequalified, and get an expert to help you search :)

Now, buyers have a ‚Äúsecond chance‚ÄĚ program designed for borrowers
"We had checked around with other companies before deciding to go with Real Estate Market Place, we didn‚Äôt get the same comfortable feeling with the others as we got with TREMP. They listened to our needs and their willingness to meet us promptly and treated us like serious buyers and not window shoppers. We always felt like we were number 1. Chip gave up some of his family time during the holidays to work with us and meant a lot; we were able to find a home quicker because of that. The whole purchase went smoothly which was very important to us as well. They were very patient and took time to answer all of our questions.
We love your company‚Äôs philosophy of having experts in each area of the process without feeling like we were being passed around or rushed by the hand off. We were most impressed by the ease of the entire process and exceed our expectations immensely. If the opportunity arises I would not hesitate to use TREMP again.
