    The story or asking family or a friend to help you and being disappointed  is all to common.

  4. Ready Financially
    Are you pre-approved for a loan? Do you have the downpayment avaialble now? Do you need to sell before you can buy? Did you know that once your home is under contract, most agents will consider you viable to make an offer?
     
  5. Strong Offer
    When you find the right house, you need to be ready to act and able to make a strong offer. This does not mean you are wealthy but can present a strong reason for the seller to take your offer. Obviously, you need to be able to pay but you can also include things that make your offer as attractive as possible. Things like paying for closing costs, fleibility on when you can close or not adding too many contingencies.
