If you choose to partner with a real estate agent, make sure that it is someone you can trust and who listens to you. Keep in mind that the property you are buying is for you. Don't let anyone talk you out of something or into a property that you don't feel is perfect for your situation. Purchase a property that you can comfortably afford. You don't want your home to be a financial burden and have to leave the property later down the road.

Buying property involves signing contracts. Make sure that you know what you are signing and that you understand what is on the documents. Keep in mind that everything is negotiable. If something isn’t right, you should not sign it until it is fixed. Once you sign the contracts, it is much harder to fix the problem.
