First time home buyer tips


Talk to a lender first

The first step to homeownership is talking with a lender and getting pre-approved. Talking to a lender will give you a realistic budget, you'll be taken more seriously, and you'll build an important relationship with your lender.


Shop around for the best rates

You can apply for a mortgage with multiple lenders at the same time without it affecting your credit score. However, there are other ways to shop around. Pro-tip, get pre-approved with one lender, then take your pre-approval letter to other banks to shop for the best rate. This tip saves you time and makes you feel at ease about lenders doing credit pulls.

"We were first-time home buyers, and Andy went above and beyond to ensure that we knew where we were at every step of the home-buying process. His knowledge as being a "flipper" himself came in handy to provide insight into the type of home we were looking at in the Historic West End. We look forward to working with Andy again in the future!"

"My experience with Andy was beyond five stars! As a first time home buyer, Andy was informative, responsive, reliable, and professional. He explained the home buying process in a way that I would understand & answered my 347,829 questions in a timely manner. He helped me find the home that met my wants and needs. I found the Garcia Collective through Instagram which shares informative posts on a daily basis & would most definitely recommend them to everyone! Follow them on IG @millennialsinvesttoo!"



"Extremely responsive,knowledgeable and professional. Very happy with my condo and will definitely recommend the Garcia's to other Millennials looking to buy in Atlanta. Very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of my agents Andy and Melissa. They worked closely with me throughout the home-buying process and made sure I understood every step as a first-time buyer. Being available via GroupMe and text whenever I had a question was very reassuring as well. I am loving my new condo in Decatur!"



"My experience with this company was absolutely the best! Jennifer and her team went above and beyond to help me and my family find our perfect home. They were responsive, communicative, and professional. They played a huge factor in helping me and my family buy our first home!

"Definitely the best real estate agent I could have asked for. I was never lost during any part of the process, and if I ever had any questions, Jennifer was quick to answer and explained all the options in detail. She helped me negotiate a great deal on my first home, and I'm very grateful that she was patient and optimistic despite the financial issues I had with my lender."

We highly recommend Andy for anyone wishing to work with a friendly, prompt, and reliable realtor!"
