First Time Home Buyer Info

Quality Service
The Perkins Team is familiar with the needs of a first time homebuyer. Looking at the process for the first time, it can seem daunting. That is why it is important to establish a good working relationship with a Realtor you trust. We have been working with buyers in this area for the past 17 years. Technology has allowed us to serve our buyers better by giving them fast, up to the minute information. However, we believe that no matter how technologically advanced an agent is, it all comes back to service. We pride ourselves in providing the best of both worlds.
We hope that you will choose to work with one of the Perkins Team agents. Here are some steps to get you started:
Find an agent
Don’t be afraid to ask questions, and make sure that you select an agent that makes you feel comfortable. Ask your agent about Buyer Agency to make sure you understand how your Realtor can best represent your interests. Once you have found the home for you, your agent will help you negotiate the purchase agreement and guide you through the closing process
Get pre-approved
Starting to look for a home before finding out your financing options is a lot like putting the cart before the horse. If you have never looked at getting approved for a mortgage, you may qualify for more or less than you expected. Any time that you spent looking at homes that do not fall into you range of affordability would have been wasted. Your Realtor can recommend several loan officers that they have worked with that will have loan programs that meet your needs.
