5 Mistakes First-time Home Buyers Make
Buying a home can be overwhelming - especially for first-time buyers. 

Want to make sure you do it right? Avoid these all-too-common first-timer mistakes:
  1. Not getting to know the neighborhood. Walk around, drive the streets, and make sure it's a place that feels safe and has the amenities you're looking for.
  2. Forgetting to think long-term. Even if you don't have kids just yet, look at school districts and playgrounds.
  3. Skipping pre-approval. Getting pre-approved for a mortgage doesn't just make your home purchase easier; it helps point you toward an appropriate price range, too.
Forgoing an agent's help can be a big mistake, too. Make sure you reach out for guidance!
Maintaining Curb Appeal in Winter
It can be hard keeping the yard lush and beautiful in the cold winter months, and if your property is on the market, curb appeal is more important than ever. 

Here's how to keep it up in winter:
  • Invest in hardy foliage. Ferns, witch hazel and even pansies hold up well in winter.
  • Keep it tidy. Edge, clear away leaves and debris, and shovel the walkways. Clean your gutters often.
  • Repaint your exterior. Give the shutters and door a fresh coat of paint, and clean any exposed brick or stucco.
Talk to your agent for ways to up your specific property's curb appeal this winter.

4 Questions to Ask When Touring a Home
Going to a showing soon? Make sure to ask these questions as your tour the property:
  1. Does it look maintained and well-cared for? If it doesn't, there may be costly repairs necessary.
  2. Will this fit my needs? Evaluate space, storage, layout, etc.
  3. Is there work to be done to get it to my liking? If you'll need to do renovations, you will want to factor this into your decision (and make sure it will fit your budget).
  4. Will it fit in with your long-term goals? Is there room to raise kids or a yard for your future pups?
