Buying a home for the first time can be stressful.  Most people make the process more stressful on themselves because they haven't been educated on the homebuying process.  The best thing you could do as a first time homebuyer is to find a free homebuyer seminar or class to help you understand the process.  When you are aware of the expectations, the process is much smoother.  Second, you need to get a realtor that you trust and feel comfortable working with.  When buying a home, you want to have your own realtor to represent you during the transaction.  Keep in mind that the realtor listed on the For Sale sign is representing the seller.  You will need to have your own realtor to represent you.  The Buyers Agent's commission typically comes from the seller, so as a buyer, you wouldn't have to worry about paying out of pocket for representation.   I have been in the real estate business for over 7 years and I specialize in representing first time homebuyers.  Please feel free to contact me with any home buying questions you may have.  Good Luck!!!!!!
