What are the steps for buying a house?
My boyfriend and I have finally decided to take the plunge and buy a house, we are tired of apartments and want to settle down. But neither of us have gone through the process before, and our families have both built their own houses. We know you have to put a certain amount down and we are pretty confident that we have enough for it. We just don’t know where start. Like do we find a house first then see if we can get a big enough loan first? Or if we go through a Realtor do they take care of all the paper work and help us with everything like a lawyer does? We need at least a 3 bedroom, because we already have a son. I know we can’t afford like a $ 150,000 house, but we also don’t want a run down house that we have to settle with. Is there like a website that helps with this stuff? Please help, I want to make sure we do all this right!
