1- Determine a Price Range


This should happen right before you start the homebuying process. If you don’t know how much you can afford, you will be shopping in the dark with a blank check and more often than not, you’ll be disappointed. Start working with a lender, get pre-approved, and see what you can actually afford. This way, you’ll only be looking at houses in your range, not those that are out of it.


2- Make a Solid, Quick Offer


The housing market is a bit tricky right now so work with an agent who can make sure your offer gets in quick and is solid. Since we have a 3.7-month supply of houses in a market that usually has a 6-month supply, according to the latest Existing Home Sales Report, this step can make or break your dreams for your house.


3- Be Prepared to Negotiate


Negotiating is the name of the game, whether it is negotiating repairs done by your or the seller or negotiating closing costs, working with an agent is always preferred because they will have your best interests at heart when they talk-the-talk in a negotiation deal.
