With the housing market this competitive, sometimes you have to think outside the box. If your having trouble finding your first home, here are a few things to consider.
Assess your budget:
If you haven't crunched the numbers, you may be underestimating what you can afford. A lender can help look at your finances and assess what you can borrow.
Consider a Condo or Duplex:
Condos can make a great starter home. They can help you build up equity to fuel a move up when you're ready.
Expand your search radius:
Widening your radius to include nearby neighborhoods or communities can help you find a hidden gem.
Weigh your must-haves and nice-to-haves:
Not finding the one? Take a look at your desired features and see if there are any nice-to-have instead of essential.
