First Time Homebuyer Guide

Imagine getting the keys to your first home

If you’re like most people you have a lot of questions about how to buy your first home (Will I qualify for a mortgage? What do I need for an earnest money deposit? How do I know if I’m buying a good house?) and you may also be hesitant to dive right in with an agent.

That’s why we created A Guide to Buying Your First Home


  • How much (or how little) you may need for a down payment
  • How student loan debt affects your mortgage qualification
  • Real estate vocab (it’s back to school for you)
  • Purchase timeline – what exactly happens between making an offer and closing
  • How does your real estate agent support you
