What I wish I knew before buying my first home

The #1 way to learn about something you've never done before? Ask others who’ve gone before! 

I’m not just an agent you know - I’m a proud homeowner, too! So here’s me, taking off my agent hat, putting on my homeowner hat, and sharing with you what I wish I would have known BEFORE buying a house.

Some things I wish I would have known:

• to always shop around for a mortgage

• to boost your emergency fund first

• know how much property taxes are and how they’re trending

• always buy in a good school district

• drive by the house at different times of day to see what the neighborhood is really like

Where are my fellow homeowners? Let’s help a buyer out: what do you wish you would have known before buying - the good, the bad, and the ugly? Share in the comments!
