The First Time Homebuyers Journey

One of the most important decisions that a person makes during their lifetime is purchasing a home.  Purchasing a home is a gigantic financial decision that also impacts your life and the way you live on a day to day basis.  For the first time home buyer, the decision can be extremely overwhelming and downright frightening.  This is why it is essential for a first time homebuyer to seek guidance and support during this enormous decision.  A dedicated real estate agent can offer the guidance and support needed to help change the overwhelming process into an enjoyable experience that will be cherished as one of the greatest achievements and milestones in your life.  Purchasing your first home should not be a stressful time that is remembered as a hassle, which you dread of ever taking part in again.  When I purchased my first home in the beautiful growing area of Pickens, South Carolina, I had no clue of how important the decision was and how it would change my life, being only 19.  I was thinking solely of the investment side of the equation and finally getting to be on my own and having the opportunity to make my own decisions.  If I would’ve had a real estate agent who had been through the process their selves and cared enough, I believe I would’ve had a much better understanding of how important the decision was that I was making.  Luckily in my case everything turned out for the best and it has helped me grow into the person I am today.  Having a dedicated, caring real estate agent that has been through this difficult process personally and has helped others through the same process can substantially decrease stress, misinformation, and in general make the purchase a foundation to build the rest of your life upon and provide a stepping stone for  the rest of your journey.
