First Time Home Buyer Assistance

Buy Your First Home!

Buying a home for the first time is exciting. If you're a first-time home buyer searching for a home in the Jacksonville, NC area, here are a few tips to guide you through the home buying process.

First Steps for First-Time Home Buyers

Learn How the Home Buying Process Works

Know what to expect from your initial home search to closing the real estate transaction with a Jacksonville home buying guide, or find more information with our frequently asked buyer questions

Start the Home Mortgage Prequalification Process

Knowing the maximum purchase price you have been approved for — before you start looking — will save you time while going through the home buying process. You will also be ready to make an offer when you find your ideal home. Calculate your ideal monthly mortgage payments and find out more about home financing by contacting a VA, FHA, or USDA Lender to start the pre-approval process for a home mortgage.  

Discover Where You Would Love to Live

You're not just searching for a property. You're searching for a home in a community. 

If you're moving to Jacksonville for the first time, find a Jacksonville, NC relocation guide that provides you with information about the area, about nearby schools, and local attractions. 

Search for a Home with Ease 

When trying to browse the sea of online real estate listings, it helps to filter through pages and pages of homes for sale. Easily search for your ideal home by feature, and sift through the listings to find a home that fits within your price range, home style, and interior features. You can even sign up to receive email updates when a home with your criteria appears on the Jacksonville real estate market.  

Find the Right Representative

The agent who has the sign in the front yard and has listed the home for sale works for the home seller. It's crucial to find a Realtor who is an Accredited Buyers Representative, so that you have an agent working with your best interests in mind and making informed decisions with you. Find out what the best home buying agents can do for you.
