Your Easy Guide to Buying Your First Home

Hey There, Future Homeowner!

So, you’re thinking about buying your first house? That’s awesome! It might seem a bit tricky at first, but don’t worry—I’ve got your back. I’m Ken Graczak, and I’ve been helping folks like you buy homes in Minnesota and Wisconsin for over 22 years. Let’s make this fun and easy!

Getting Your Money Stuff Sorted

Before we start looking at cool houses, let’s chat about money. It’s super important to check your credit score, handle any big debts you have, and save some cash for emergencies. This is going to help you big time when it’s time to pick a mortgage that fits just right.

Finding the Perfect Home for You

Now, let’s talk about finding a home that makes you say, “Wow!” It’s not just about what you want (like a big backyard or a cool kitchen), but also what you need (like enough bedrooms). I’ll show you how to use websites to find houses and why a good real estate agent can be your best friend in finding your dream home.

Making a Smart Offer

Found a house you love? Great! Now we need to make an offer that the seller will like, but that also works for you. I’ll give you the inside scoop on how to do this smartly and how to talk prices without stressing out.

Picking the Best Mortgage for You

There are lots of different home loans out there. I’ll walk you through them in my video and help you figure out which one is best for you, so you’re not paying more than you need to.

The Home Stretch: Closing Time

Almost there! After your offer is accepted, there are a few more things to do like checking the house (that’s called an inspection), getting home insurance, and sorting out the paperwork. I’ll explain all this so it’s super clear.
