Orange County Home Buyer Resources


If you are considering the purchase of a new home in Orange County, California, you have come to the right place! If you are a first time home buyer and you are wondering how to purchase your first property, you may find that these resource web pages are a great tool for you! Simply read thorough the pages one step at a time to understand the whole buying process. If you are seeking to move up to a larger house or have reached the point where you would like a smaller, lower maintenance property, you may find these pages very valuable also.

Veterans, there are several great programs you can take advantage of to buy a home including a VA no down payment loan and a new tax credit. FHA loans can be used to buy a house with a lower down payment. There are web pages to help you determine which type of house is best for you, links to search for properties, and a useful guide to help you understand what happens during escrow. You will learn about lease options, seller financing, and other creative finance techniques. You will also learn about getting pre-approved for a loan, what forms are used to write your offer, the differences between condos, town houses, and single family units, and how to determine the offer price on a property. If you have not bought a home for a while, a review of these pages will also be very helpful.

The home buying process on this site has been created as a series of steps. You may walk through the entire process by visiting each page, or you may jump ahead to any page that you might be interested in, using the menu below. If you have any questions about buying your first home, an investment property, a second property or if you are down-sizing or up-sizing, selling your home, or considering leasing, please feel free to give me a call!
