FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS GUIDE
Narrow down the areas you’d like to search for a home – You can do this by narrowing down the counties your interested in. Like, Cumberland County or York County. You can also do this by narrowing down specific towns. Like, Cumberland, Yarmouth, Freeport, or Falmouth. Another great way to do this is by to narrow your search down to a certain mile radius from a specific point. like, 10 miles from your daily job you will need to travel to or within a 15 mile radius of your families home in Freeport or your friends in New Gloucester.
Find a Realtor – You need a realtor who will listen to your wants and needs carefully. A good Realtor can guide you through the entire process and make the experience much less stressful.
