    Don't buy house inside HOA area. You will lose your right with HOA and will cost more.

    paying for the house is not what it cost to run it and maintain it    just know that the lender does not care about you  only what money hes gone make

    I'm an agent. I like what you've done here. I also suggest to my buyer (if a first timer especially) to do a budget, then add 10% of their net income to represent a minimum amount of savings they need to be putting away above the all their expenses. Many folks unfortunately don't want to do this until 3 different sources tell them to. I would like your permission to show this to my clients when I take them on. It helps no one (me too) to sell a client a house they can't afford.

    There are tools to help calculate your monthly payment and affordable loan amount. Get Loan Calculator from to help you analyze your loan.

    This video is very informative and I have to say spot on. I couldn't agree more with her suggestions and comments. Especially the point about buying too much house for you. Too many times I have seen a family or individual buy a home they cannot afford.

    Being a Broker; I find it offensive to be considered just a Salesperson. We are required to undergo so much educational training. It's like constantly going to college; which I did that too, first. Then we must take 15 ceu's in education to update us; every two years. We are threatened with our job security constantly with "law suits" if we don't do a perfect job. So you really must love it today, to be in it. I became a Realtor, because my Realtor did such a shoddy job. I care.

    Understand you had some bad experience with Realtors. Me too. But there are many of good one out there…believe me. Knowing what I know today as Realtor I would highly suggest to anyone (especially first time home buyers) to work with a Realtor. Find a Realtor that will give you 100% satisfaction guarantee like mine or ask family and friends if they know or experienced a good Realtor.
