First-Time Buyers

Utah First-Time Home Buyers

Know your numbers.
Know yourself.

Our first-time home-buying process begins with knowing your numbers. Yes, first-time home buyers need to pre-qualify so you know how much home you can afford. Some important questions to discuss with your lender include not just what your payment will be but if it makes sense to buy down the interest rate. Closing costs are another expense you'll want to be aware of. These are the direct costs associated with getting a loan. Talk with your agent about the possibility of having the seller pay for them so you can keep more of your limited cash for your down payment. Equally important is knowing what matters most to you and why. We go beyond the basics (location, square footage, etc.) to understand you and your goals, so we can show you homes that feel like a fit.

Know when to walk away.

In a dynamic housing market like Utah County, it's easy to get carried away in the moment and overspend. We help first-time home buyers be competitive without overdoing it. Our first time home buying process helps you know when to walk away and when to go for it

Always know what's next.

We check in with you regularly and provide proactive updates, so you always know where we are in the process and what's next. No matter what's happening with your purchase, we can coach you on what moves to make and how to respond to changing conditions.

Know what you're buying.

If you don't know what to look for, you can accidentally buy a money pit instead of a home. Kasby can protect you from falling in love with a home that isn't what it seems to be. Despite having great curb appeal, some homes hide costly repairs or maintenance issues that are hard to detect. We can help you see things objectively and make informed decisions.

Know how to maintain and protect your investment.

Kasby also helps first-time home buyers learn how to maintain and protect their homes by introducing them to qualified service providers who know what they're doing. From electrical and plumbing to HVAC and landscaping, we know who in Utah County to call when it counts.

We're ready to help you
