First-time homebuyers often need so much education in order to make intelligent decisions about what is often the largest investment they will ever make. That is a primary reason that Betsy and I feel it is so important for first-time homebuyers to choose a realtor that is willing to take the time to educate, explain, and advise you not only on the complex aspects of purchasing a home, but on pitfalls to avoid when making that purchase. We both love serving in that capacity! For some great advice on avoiding home-purchasing pitfalls (and this really doesn’t apply to just first-timers!), Investopedia’s 10 first-time-homebuyer mistakes is a terrific place to start. Heed its advice, including its advice on engaging a realtor to represent you, and your home purchasing experience will be an exciting adventure from which you will learn much for your future!
