First Time Home Buyers | Planning For Success

Buying a home can be a very emotional experience. The commitment, the cost, and the search itself, are just a few of the heady dynamics at work when buying a home. Even seasoned home buyers go through this roller coaster each and every time they buy. So as a first time home buyer, you have plenty of company. IMHO, there are really two primary keys to navigating through a successful real estate transaction; whether it’s your first one, or your fifth one: Preparation and a reasonable set of expectations. 

I’ve put together a First Time Home Buyers Portal, which consists of a list of links to some information that will get you started on your preparation, and, help manage your expectations. Shopping for your first home is very exciting, and when everything is in place, a lot of fun too! 

I am always available, and welcome the opportunity to speak with you at your convenience. If that sounds like something you’d like to do, you can call/text me at: (818) 522-8378. You can also email me at: Mark@MarinoRealEstate.com.


How do you get into a home with as little money down as possible these days? That’s a question I get from Buyers all the time. There are a couple of strategies you can use to do that. Strategies I like to call, “The Low Down Home.”  (click image below)
