Step 1: Define Your Needs and Set a Budget
Before diving into the home-buying process, it’s crucial to clearly define your needs and establish a realistic budget. Consider your desired location, the size and style of the home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and any specific features or amenities that are important to you. With a clear understanding of your needs, you can focus your search and avoid wasting time on properties that don’t meet your criteria. Additionally, assess your financial situation and consult with a mortgage lender to determine how much you can comfortably afford.

Step 6: Importance of Inspections
Inspections are a vital part of the home-buying process. We highly recommend hiring professional inspectors to thoroughly evaluate the property’s condition and identify any potential issues. Inspections cover areas such as the foundation, roof, electrical systems, plumbing, and more. Combined Associates can provide you with a list of reputable inspectors who will conduct comprehensive evaluations, providing you with peace of mind and protecting you from unforeseen expenses down the road.
