Hey there, future homeowners! Your home girl is here with the inside scoop to make sure you're sipping coffee in your very own place come 2024. Every Monday in November, I'm spilling the beans on the essential steps to turn your dream of homeownership into a reality. So, grab a cup of joe and let's dive into the first three steps to kickstart your journey!

1. LET’S CHAT ☕️

Picture this: We're sitting across from each other, coffee in hand, having a laid-back conversation about you. Why? Because this process is all about you! I want to know your dreams, your goals, your timeline, and every little detail that makes you, well, you. Understanding your motivations helps me tailor the home-buying process to fit like a glove. So, spill the beans—what brings you to the home-buying table?


Now that we've had our coffee date, it's time to hit the road! Take a spin around the neighborhoods you're eyeing. But here's the pro tip: timing is everything. Test the waters in the early morning to gauge the traffic, swing by around school time at 3 PM, and catch the vibes during dinner hours. You'll get a feel for the neighborhood's rhythm and discover things you might not have noticed otherwise. After all, you won't know what a Tuesday morning feels like until you've experienced it firsthand!


I get it, the idea of chatting with a lender might sound daunting, but trust me, they don't bite—promise! Taking this step is crucial to understanding your financial landscape and mapping out your home-buying journey. I've got a few fantastic lenders up my sleeve, ready to help you navigate the financial waters. If you already have a solid relationship with your bank, that works too! The key is taking that leap and making the connection. Your dream home is just a conversation away.
