Answering Your Davis (Yolo County) Home Buying Questions

Buying a Davis (Yolo County) home is both thrilling and a bit unnerving, especially if you're a first-time home buyer. Both experienced home buyers and first-time buyers alike will benefit from the frequently asked questions below. Before you begin your Davis (Yolo County) home search, we recommended that you prepare yourself for the journey by educating yourself here. This will ensure you are a knowledgeable home buyer prepared to make a confident home buying decision.

Q - I've never purchased a home before.  Where should I begin?

A - Actually, you've already started the process. And fortunately, you've found our web site! At First Street Real Estate, RE/MAX Gold, we can walk you through the home buying process whether you're buying your first ever home or this is your 4th purchase in a year! Call us. We'll help you:

  • Analyze how you'll pay for your new home (with cash or a loan by one of our trusted lenders).
  • Learn about the Davis (Yolo County) real estate market.
  • Get familiar with the California purchase contract 
  • Negotiate price and terms for a sweet deal!
  • Determine how many homes you should own to set yourself up for a nice flow of income now or in the future.

Q - With all the bad news about mortgage products and home foreclosures, how do I avoid making a big mistake when deciding which type of loan to select?

A - Once we meet and review your finances along with your home buying needs, you should select a lending consultant. We can recommend several trusted lending professionals or you can choose your own. Having upmost confidence in your lender is important. Be sure you feel completely at ease with them.  They should speak to you in easy to understand terms.  Ask lots of questions and never sign any document until you know what you are signing and feel completely at ease signing it. More and more lending professionals are recommending fixed interest rate loans and interest rates are at historic lows. Of course, the type of loan best for you depends on several factors. Here are just a few:

  • How much money do you have for a down payment?
  • How long do you plan to live in the home?
  • Do you qualify for a FHA or VA loan (or one of the many other programs available)?

Because the number of homes on the market here in Davis (Yolo County) is limited, having a skilled agent on your side is more important than ever. Let us help!
