The basic steps to buying a home are as follows:
Determine your budget: The first step is to determine how much you can afford to spend on a home. This will help you determine your price range and narrow down your search.
Get pre-approved for a mortgage: This involves getting a loan pre-approval from a bank or other financial institution. It is important to do this early in the process so you know exactly how much you can afford.

Search for homes: Once you have your budget and pre-approval, you can start searching for homes that meet your needs and budget. You can search online, attend open houses, or work with your real estate agent to find properties that fit your criteria.
Make an offer: When you find a home you want to purchase, you will need to make an offer to the seller. Your real estate agent can help you draft a purchase agreement that includes the price you are willing to pay and any contingencies.
Complete a home inspection: Once your offer is accepted, you will need to have a home inspection done to ensure there are no major issues with the property. If there are any issues, you can negotiate with the seller to have them repaired or to adjust the price.
Close the deal: After the inspection and any necessary repairs are completed, you can close the deal. This involves signing the final paperwork, paying closing costs, and transferring ownership of the property
