First Time Home Buyer?

Hello again! Something that has been on my heart and is always a favorite topic of mine, is helping first time home buyers make the transition from renting or living at home to owning a place of their own. 

Just between you and me first time home buyers are often my favorite clients (I love them all really, but you know). It is often such an exciting time in your life, it may be a new beginning, or a step this person has been working on for years, either way it is supposed to be a very fun time. 

With all of that being said, it can be overwhelming and I am not into being overwhelmed in my own life, so I certainly don't want my clients to be overwhelmed. I remember when I bought my first home, everyone uses industry "lingo" APR, Conventional, FHA, VA, Escrow, Title Company, Lender....ummmm what does all of this mean? Now a lot of my buyers (most) are much smarter and more in the know than I was at this time of my life, but even when you have a general idea it can get confusing. This is particularly hard when the market is moving fast and decisions...HUGE DECISIONS.. seem like they have to be made very quickly or your dreams are going out the window.
