Buying a Home

FindLaw's Buying a Home section provides in-depth information for first-time home buyers, veteran real estate flippers, and everyone in-between. The Home Buying Guide goes over everything you need to know to buy a house, including lists of questions to ask your real estate agent, mortgage agent, lawyer, and home inspector. The section on the Home Buying Process provides a step-by-step guide to buying a home, while the Resources section provides checklists and worksheets to help you evaluate what you can afford and how to find the right real estate lawyer or agent in your area. A home is typically the largest transaction an individual will make in his or her lifetime, involving several legal and fiduciary considerations. This section will help you get up to speed before you sign on the dotted line.
