Taking a First Step IS Hard!

Taking a first step is hard. No matter what you are attempting: Learning to ride a bike; Learning to swim; Learning to drive a car; Learning a foreign language. Even setting up an extensive vacation can be a challenge with hotel reservations, airline tickets, passports, car rentals etc. A while back, I had a REALTOR® friend ask me how to blog. I gave her quick rundown on how to get going fast, but her response gave me pause. Where can I take a class? Is there  a book? Last I heard, she was heading to the library and months later, still no blog.  

The First Step IS Hard--But doesn't have to be...

First time home buyers often feel this way too and it’s usually because they don’t know where to start. Many folks have only one experience with buying a big ticket item…a new car. And we all can remember how much “FUN” that experience was!  Buying a home should be easier!  Because when you purchase a house you have your own REALTOR® in your corner working for YOU! That used car salesman was working for his manager in the back office; the one who had to approve your offer. On a home purchase, I am with my client negotiating the counter offer.  What a vastly different experience than buying a car and the salesman leaves you alone in a cubicle with a cold cup of coffee waiting for an answer. 

First time home buyers who want to learn more about the process generally start by scouring the internet for answers. There is a load of information out there…but is it GOOD information? How does it relate to buying a Minnesota home? Will the programs outlined on the website visited work if you want to buy a home in Washington County, Anoka County or is it only for a specific area or state?
Often I am asked by friends and relatives where potential home buyers can take a class to learn more about buying a home. Most people need a class that will fit their schedule and get them out searching for their dream home very quickly.

Well, I will let you in on a little secret. First time home buyers do not need to sit in a class to learn to buy a house. There isn’t a class requirement to write a purchase agreement. If you want to learn the process, contact me. I can walk you through the process and put you on a fast track to purchasing your first home. This will enable you to take advantage of the extremely low interest rates that are available this fall too. As an experienced and professional REALTOR® with hundreds of extremely happy clients, I can educate you quickly on the process of buying your first home and at NO out of pocket cost to you!
