It is time to find a trustworthy real estate professional and search for a house.
First, you’ll want to find your best real estate agent!
We recommend interviewing with at least two real estate agents before you choose one. Ask them for references and even consult your own family and friends. You can also call the Wyoming Real Estate Commission to verify an agent’s good standing. An agent who shares your vision will help you find the right home and navigate the home buying experience while also using the code of ethics at the center of their work.
After making your selection, sit with your chosen realtor to determine your wants vs. needs and reality vs. dreams. With the help of your realtor and your friends, you can get a great idea of what you need from home and what shouldn’t be a deal breaker. Your real estate professional can tell you what is available in the area and what is realistic for your budget, timeline and needs.
If you are a first-time home buyer, remember it is unlikely that this home will be your last, so make some sacrifices to stay within your budget. Getting caught up in glam can be easy, but staying within your means is essential. Most people look online before they step into a home for sale because it is easy to do today. You can favorite some properties and disregard others you know are not for you. Then choose the neighborhoods you are interested in and give a list to your agent.
Every real estate agent performs the home searching process differently, but we recommend scheduling a time to connect with your agent for a debrief after each showing to help them gain a good pulse on what you are looking for in a home.
