If you're new to the homebuying process, it's easy to make these common mistakes.  It is important to find a buyers agent you can trust, who will work on behalf of your interest instead of the seller's, and will help you avoid these pitfalls.  That is the first smart decision you can make!  Some things to avoid are:

  • Househunting before getting a pre-approval for a mortgage
  • Prioritizing the home itself over the neighborhood that it's in
  • Having too many "must haves" on your list that you disqualify yourself from every possible home in your parameters
  • Letting emotion rule the day
  • Only consulting one lender
  • Not being diligent with your credit and savings
  • Not looking into assistance programs you might qualify for
