Buy Your First Home

If you're tired of renting and ready to own your first home, it's time to start looking at Tuscaloosa homes for sale. When purchasing your first home, following a few guidelines will help you lower your costs, minimize your stress, and make the experience as pleasant as possible. Here are some tips to follow when buying your first home. 

  1. Save More Money Than You Think You'll Need
    Most would-be homeowners know that there are expenses associated with owning a home. You'll likely need a downpayment (typically between 3.5 and 20 percent of the home's purchase price, depending on your mortgage), funds for closing costs (around 2 to 5 percent of the home's purchase price), and money for moving expenses. However, many first-time homeowners find that homeownership comes with a lot of expenses that they didn't even think about when budgeting for their new space. You might know that you'll need more furniture for a larger space, but things like outdoor furniture, yard equipment, and new organizational supplies might slip your mind.
