Buying Your First Home Doesn't Have to Be Scary

Posted by The Bell Team - KW on Tuesday, June 4th, 2019 at 10:27am

If you're a college graduate, a newlywed, or even if you're a recent retiree, you may be looking to purchase your first home. Maybe you're just tired of paying rent! A lot of buyers are intimidated by the home buying process--even those who have purchased and sold a home before! Are these questions swirling around your head? 

  • What can I afford? 
  • What kind of city do I want to live in? 
  • How do I get preapproved? 
  • How do I find a reputable lender? 
  • How do I find a real estate agent that will put my needs first? 
  • Will my home ACTUALLY appreciate over time? 

These questions and more will be answered at our First Time Home Buyer Seminar. Homestar's Candice Crook will be leading an informational session where she'll cover the ins and outs of buying a home. Here's a preview of her outline:
