If you are thinking about moving up to a larger, more expensive home, you need to consider doing it now. Prices are projected to appreciate by over 15% from now to 2016. If you are moving to a higher priced home, it will wind-up costing you more in raw dollars (both in down payment and mortgage payment) if you wait.
Furthermore, you can also lock-in a 30 year housing expense with historically low interest rates right now. There is no way rates will remain at these levels in the years to come. If you are thinking about making that move you need and expert in the market on your side. Myself and my team are expert advisors that will find the home of your choice and get the price and terms you are looking for.

You'll want to interview top local agents to determine who will do the best job for you. What you are trying to determine is who has a finger on the pulse of the real estate market and can offer professional guidance to get your house sold for a reasonable amount.Make sure your agent is a member of The National Association of Expert Advisors(NAEA). The NAEA agent averages 8 times the annual home sales of your traditional agent.
Ask these questions before listing with an agent:
How many homes have you sold in the past year?
How many in the past six months?
How did the selling price of those homes differ in relation to the list price?
What do I need to do to the outside of my home to increase curb appeal?
What do I need to do to the inside of my home to make it more attractive to potential buyers?
What can I do to make my home sell quickly?
How many homes like mine are currently for sale in this town? How much are they listed ; ...

This is for the first time home buyer and anyone who has not purchased a home in the last few years. In these current times you really need to make sure you are working professionals.
1. You must know everyone involved with your transaction.
2. Learn how to write your offer ( your agent should be the expert on this)
3. Look at all the costs ie.. mortgage, inspections, taxes. Consult with your local expert they should be able to give you a good estimate on these costs in writing. If not look elsewhere.
4. DO NOT use your credit while you are in the process of your purchase. This could effect your loan process and end up costing you money or worse(you not getting your home). After settlement you can use your credit as you see fit.
5. Get to know the neighborhoods you are interested in. Having a good understanding on the areas you are looking to move into are key to many years of happiness.
