Buying a House You Love

Finding a house that fits you isn’t as easy TV makes it, but having someone experienced can make the process less stressful.

Louis works at Daymark Realty which is owned by Coastal Federal Union. We used them when we were hunting for our current place. With Anita Oxford from the team helping us our we got a deal on a house we love. That’s what made me reach out to Coastal for this episode.

Besides working with clients as a real estate agent, Louis also leads seminars for fir-time home buyers. But even with his technical and practical expertise, he still encourages clients to be involved and asks questions.

The first step is knowing what you’re looking for. Besides your budget and location, the two of you should sit down discuss what features you need in a house. Your house is a part of your life, so plan accordingly.

I like that you point out that one of the first things you should do when buying a house is know what you want. I have been thinking about what I want in my first house because I am wanting to buy one in the next year or two. Like you say, I think that location and budget are the other two things to keep in mind. As I get closer to being able to afford one, I’ll definitely keep this in mind.
