Buying Your First Home? How a Real Estate Agent Can Help

Buying your first home can be scary. For those that have never tested the real estate market, it can be nearly impossible to navigate the process all by yourself. How much can you afford? Where do you look? What in the world does escrow mean?

A reputable real estate agent can not only introduce you to homes in your price range, but can help you find a lender, handle the paperwork and walk with you through the entire process, ending when he or she hands you the keys to your brand new home.

On this episode of Chat with the Experts, Gavin Frost of F.C. Tucker in Indianapolis offers up his advice about purchasing your first house. Frost explains how to know if you're financially and emotionally ready for homeownership and explains the role of a real estate agent during each step of the process. Listen in and watch below!
