Owning your own home is the American Dream. And that dream is more alive today than
ever before. Yet one of the first realizations a prospective home buyer often comes
to is that the "dream home" does not always seem affordable.
Buying a home has changed. Before, buyers usually shopped for the best house they
could find, then "took out" a loan. Today, prospective buyers must shop as thoroughly
as they can for the best financing as they do for the best house. In today’s market,
both tasks are equally important.
Experience has taught us that the buying process involves common stages for all
homebuyers. To help you understand that process, and make the most of every day
and dollar you spend, LONG & FOSTER® REAL ESTATE, INC. has prepared this
Homebuyers Guide to provide an overview from the planning table to the closing table.
Of course, this short guide cannot answer all your questions. For specific answers,
we encourage you to consult a
Long & Foster Sales Associate. After all, helping you fulfill
your homeownership dream is our business.
