Colorado RE/MAX Realtor Kim Lane Shares First-Time Homebuyer Secrets



“Buying a home for the first time can be quite a challenge,” said Lane, who has been in the real estate industry since 2000. “Fortunately, there are ways to ease the process.”

To help first-time buyers, Lane, an associate broker at RE/MAX Properties, Inc., lists the following three tips:

No. 1: Get pre-approved. First-time buyers should always be pre-approved from one or more lenders before even beginning their search. “This helps determine the amount of money you are qualified to borrow,” noted Lane. “This also helps determine the maximum price you can afford.”

No. 2: Make a well-informed decision. Buying a home is an emotional decision, as one has most likely been dreaming of it for a long time. “However, you have to take as much emotion out of it that you can so that you can make a well-informed decision when buying a house,” added Lane. “Always be analytical so you know exactly what type of house you are looking for and what you can afford.”

No. 3: Find a reliable Realtor. Oftentimes, first-time buyers require extra detailed explanations of each step in the process. “It’s imperative that you feel comfortable with your Realtor so you receive reliable answers to your important questions,” stressed Lane. “Find one that has a proven track record and comes highly recommended.”
