First time home buyers, welcome.  Seasoned buyers, welcome.  Regardless of how many properties you have purchased in the past, the rules, regulations and ongoing contract and promulgated form updates make the experience of buying a home a little bit different each and every time.  
It is important you have someone to represent YOUR interests, goals, objectives and time frame.  

Practices I follow with each and every buyer:

Protect client interests first | Teach how to get started wherever they are in the process |Help understand the ‘micro’ market where they are buying | Communicate day in and out |
Negotiate. Advise when to push harder &  when to pull back.

Steps in buying a home

Important FIRST STEPS when Buying A Home in Austin Tx

Speak with a lender to get pre-approved.  It may not be necessary to meet face to face with a lender, but I do encourage that if you have not been through this process before.  Click here to see a list of lenders my clients and I have worked with in the past.  Also included in the link is a list of documents you will need to provide to the lender to get pre approved.

The second and just as important step is to choose a Realtor wisely.  The competition in Austin and surrounding markets is fierce among buyers at all levels.  Having an experienced and knowledgable agent guide you through the offer, contract and closing process is ideal.  Finding the house is only the beginning!  Knowing how to get it under contract and seal the deal is important in the Austin, TX real estate market.
