First-Time Lafayette Home Buyers

If you are a first-time Lafayette home buyer, welcome to the Robbie Breaux & Team first-time home buying experts! 

Below are some general guidelines for first-time home buyers (though any home buyer can benefit by reviewing the list).

  • Get a Mortgage Pre-approval : Meet with a mortgage broker or banker to discover how much you can afford to pay for a home.
  • Write Down a List of Needs & Wants: Make 2 lists for your needs and wants. The first list should be those things you MUST HAVE. These items could be the number of bedrooms, a backyard or a garage. The second list of wants could be things such as a white kitchen or a pool. The best way to think about it is that the first list includes things that cannot be easily added or changed in a home. The second list are items, such as carpet color, that can be changed at a later date after purchase.
  • Have a Professional Buyers Agent Assist You: Remember that the real estate agent selling a home usually represents the seller and their interests, not your interest as a buyer. Robbie Breaux & Team are home buyer experts that would represent you and your interests, not those of the home seller. 
  • Stay Focused & Organized: When thinking about buying your new home, consider your Lafayette home buying wants and needs. Write them down and keep them in mind as the Robbie Breaux & Team show you all of the options for new homes in the Lafayette area.
