circus-tent.gifFor those of you in the first time home buyer’s category, obtaining lots of information is critical to your success as a consumer when looking for a home (well, it’s true of seasoned buyers too).

There are lots of ways to do this.

  • Reading this blog
  • Attending buyer seminar offered by agents and other real estate professionals
  • Researching the Internet
  • Talking with friends and family who have bought
  • Working with a knowledgeable REALTOR
  • Reading books, or reports from agent sites

And so on. Many communities offer programs to assist new buyers and these are worth checking into. In some areas you may qualify for special financing once you complete such a program, provided you purchase a home without your community.

If you are a resident of North County San Diego. There is a HOMEBUYER’S FAIR for first time buyers being held on JUNE 16 from 10 AM until 3 PM. The event (the 8th annual) will be held at  Palomar College in Oceanside.

June is designated as NATIONAL HOMEOWNERSHIP MONTH by HUD, and many communities offer similar services during this time to help buyers.  Check with your town or city offices to see what they have to offer you. It might be a great resource.
