Tips When Purchasing Your First Home

moo logo

Enter the world of purchasing a home in Santa Fe with confidence! Buying your first home doesn’t have to be stressful – it actually should be a very enjoyable experience. After all, there is only one time you will purchase “your first home”.

Throughout Santa Fe, there are condos, historic homes, homes with amazing views, and even estates. You can purchase a lot and build your own home to meet your own style close to state parks, downtown or further away.  The options are endless!

When looking for your first home, there are several factors you should take into consideration:

  1. Use a mortgage calculator. You never want to make an offer on a home above your price range. Mortgage calculators will provide you with an estimate, allowing you to make a very wise decision when it comes time to place an offer on a home.
  2. When walking through a home, inspect everything. Check the exterior and interior of the home for damage. Take your time. Even though home inspectors will look over the home for defects, it is always a good idea to do your own inspection if possible.
  3. Ask your realtor about FHA loans. These are loans that are geared especially towards first-time home buyers, and you may qualify for one!
