Wife and I are planning to buy a house later this year. Both of us will be first time homebuyers, so we're not exactly experts on the subject. Any tips or tricks for us when talking to realtors and stuff like that? We have a decent amount saved up for a down payment, trying to get as close to 20% as possible. We've noticed some foreclosures in the area. We've heard good things and bad things about them, any personal insight? Also, our current lease is up at the end of August. Realistically speaking when should we start seriously looking at houses? Thanks in advance.
