1. Find an exclusive buyer’s agent who will only represent you, under all circumstances, and then you can wear slippers.
  2. Get good recommendations for a FEW lenders. Then interview them until you find the right fit.
  3. Make out a Wants vs Needs list before even looking at any properties on line. Needs come first!
  4. Together, with the lenders opinion of your price range capability, your house needs being met, you will be able to narrow choices and not have to look at soooooo many pairs of shoes (I mean Houses 😉) before you know.
