Where you live matters. That’s why Kevin Kalligher of RE/MAX results has four tips on how to begin to look for your new home.

Tip No. 1: get preapproved with a local lender and research different loan options.

Tip No. 2: Find a realtor who can act as an advisor and advocate for you.

Tip No. 3: Determine what your must-haves are in a home. This includes where you want to live, how many bedrooms do you want, and what is you ideal monthly payment.

Tip No. 4: Consider the current market conditions. If you’re not ready to be all in when writing an offer in a competitive environment it might not be the best time for you. And it might better to wait and save more money in order to have a larger down payment down the road.
