Have you decided that your first home should have three bedrooms and a big yard but what else do you also need to consider? Below are five tips to think about during your house hunt!

Make a checklist and use it. Figure out what features are essential to you and refer back to your list when viewing properties. Your list may change but it offers you a good starting point.

Consider all expenses. In calculating what you can afford be sure and factor in the other expenses of owning a home such as taxes, insurance, commuting costs and utilities.

Ask for the paperwork. Before submitting an offer it's always a good idea to request a copy of the HOA rules if looking at a property with a homeowners association.

Research funding sources. As a first time home buyer you may qualify for home buyer-assistance programs based on your profession, income, or the property's location.

Think about resale value. Most important and not always top of mind with first time home buyers is to consider the resale value. The homes unique features may be what you appreciate most but will potential buyers also love them when you may be ready to sell?

Purchasing a home involves a lot of decision making and one of the best decisions you can make when you are ready to buy your first home is to choose a full-time Texas Realtor that has the experience and knowledge to help you reach your real estate goals.
