HGTV's FrontDoor.com Identifies Top 10 Things First-Time HomebuyersShould Know
Published: 3/10/2010
 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (March 8, 2010)
- Buying a home for the first time can be complex. To avoid mistakes and make a smart purchase, dothe homework and know what to expect. To help start the process, HGTV's FrontDoor.com identifies the top 10 important points every first-time buyer must know. (http://www.frontdoor.com/top10
 
) 
Don't let the lucrative market dictate a buying decision if thetime isn't absolutely right. Potential homebuyers need to ask themselves if they have a good credit score, if their job is secure and if they can stayin the home for a few years. If the answer to these questions is "no," it might make more sense to wait until life and finances are more stable.
On top of a mortgage payment, there are several monthly fees and ex-penses any first-time buyer should consider when becoming a homeowner: insurance, property taxes, utilities and maintenance. Think about scal-ing back the home price in order to better budget for the entire package.
A sizeable down payment is great to have for a home purchase, but not everyone canafford to fork over 20 percent upfront. Fortunately, there are many federal, state and local programs geared toward helping first-time homebuyerswith down payments, interest rates and loan terms sure to make the whole process and affordability a bit easier.
Buying a foreclosed or short sale home can be a risky propo-sition for a first-time buyer. Foreclosures are often sold "as-is," while a short sale transaction can be lengthier and more complicated than a typicalhome purchase. First-timers should consult an agent or attorney with specialization in these areas.
Obtaining lender pre-approvals are important because it establishes ahomebuyer's maximum purchase price, shows sellers that the buyer is serious about buying a home and lets the homebuyer compare interestrates and terms to find the best deal.
One of the most important aspects of a home's value is the neighborhood where it's located.Even if the homebuyer does not have kids, buying a home near sought-after schools can help the resale value.
Buyers using FHA-insured mortgages can apply their tax credit toward their home pur-chase immediately, rather than waiting until they file their income taxes to receive a refund. Prospective buyers who believe they qualify for thecredit are also allowed to reduce their income tax withholding, therefore increasing their take-home pay.
There are three types of agents: listing agents, who represent sellers and help them get the bestprice; buyers' agents, who represent buyers and protect their interests; and agents who represent either (or both). Often, first-time buyers prefer towork exclusively with a buyer's agent so there are no possible conflicts of interest.
Before buying the home, determine the property's market value by havingthe realtor conduct a comparative market analysis. This report will show what buyers were willing to pay for similar homes in the area, giving agood idea of what will make a fair offer.
Before signing on the dotted line, make sure to have a contingency plan in case things don't go asplanned
in the home inspection or appraisal. If the home has a major flaw or doesn't appraise for the purchase price, an escape plan allows the contract to be voided.
