As a realtor, homeownership is one of the most significant investments one can make in their lifetime since homes are an appreciating asset. Seeing the demand of so many people from all different backgrounds wanting to pursue homeownership, not knowing where to start, I developed this guide. Tia’s Guide To Homeownership will help potential homebuyers understand and evaluate their readiness for this journey. I’ll start with what a buyer needs to do to get themselves homebuying ready, different mortgage loans available, how to choose the right realtor, and find the perfect home. I will also discuss inspections, appraisals, the underwriting process, all the way to what they can do as a homeowner after closing to protect and maintain their new investment.
