Are You a First Time Home Buyer?

First Time Home Buyer Tips & Process

We Would Love to Help You!

We love working with first time home buyers and we have helped hundreds of clients purchase their first homes in Austin and the surrounding areas. We understand the unique challenges that buying your first home presents and we can help you through every step of the process. We know that you want to understand all of your options and to make sure that you're making the right decision. We pride ourselves on our no pressure approach and would love to help guide you through the process.


Tips & Process

  1. Initial Consultation

    To get started, we like to schedule a short phone call or in person meeting to discuss your priorities & time frame. During this call or meeting, we can discuss the buying process, different areas of town, and any other questions you might have. Would you prefer to get started over email? That's also completely fine!
  2. Lender Introduction

    If you haven't already spoken with a lender, it's great to start that conversation so that you can get a pre-approval letter, which you will need to make an offer on a home. Even if you don't plan to make an offer right away, a lender pre-approval will show you how much your monthly payments will be at different price points, so we can effectively set your price range.
  3. Targeted Property Searches

    It's great for you to search online on your own, but we will also set up highly targeted property searches based on the locations we've identified and your specific needs in your new home. The MLS provides us a powerful property search that we have years of experience using, so we can taylor your searches just for you. We will create a separate search for each area/neighborhood that you want to explore, which allows you to easily organize your search.
  4. Organize Your Favorites

    We'll provide a client portal that allows you to save favorites, possibilities, and discard properties that you don't like. You can make notes on properties so that you can easily remember what you liked about each home. If you're buying your new home with your partner or family, this allows you to share your thoughts on different properties and areas easily.
  5. Tour Areas & Properties

    Everyone moves at their own pace and we're happy to move as quickly or slowly as you would like to. We've found that it's best to spend 2-4 hours on your first appointments looking at homes, as that allows us to arrow down your location. After you know exactly which neighborhoods you would like to target, we can view homes as they hit the market, or spend more time to look at many homes in one outing.
  6. Move Forward With a Purchase

    When you're ready to move forward with your purchase, we will guide you through the traditional home buying process. We do understand that a relocation can present unique challenges that usually involve purchasing remotely, and we're happy to help you through this process.

We did it! With Meaghan’s help we were able to sell my home in this crazy market. When it came time to list my home I didn’t hesitate to reach out to her as she was the one who helped me purchase it. Working with Meaghan is easy, despite the market throwing many challenges she stayed the course and adjusted as the housing market rapidly changed landscapes. If you are looking for a Realtor who will take the time to listen to what is needed when it comes to buying OR selling… She’s it. I’m grateful for her patience, the way in which she works with others and the time she takes to care for the well being of her clients. A gem in a crowded Realtor arena. Thank you Meaghan Marks for always looking out!!!

We worked with Elizabeth Michael for over a year to prepare our home for sale. She was kind and patient, but most of all she was very knowledgeable and thorough. It’s a long and at times arduous process preparing a home to list, but with her help we were able to optimize the space with staging and address the minor concerns that came up in our pre-listing inspection. I highly recommend her for your next sale or home purchase!

Vicki went above and beyond to ensure our experience of purchasing a new home remotely went as smooth as possible. I can’t tell her thank you enough!

Our family was very fortunate to have Linda Baddour at Bramlett as our realtor. She worked hard to sell our house quickly and for a great price, and was very diligent in finding us our new perfect home for our family. Linda was friendly, attentive and responsive throughout our home selling and buying process, and we would highly recommend her.

We worked with Robin Deshotels, and it was an absolute pleasure. She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful, especially since we were first-time homebuyers. Highly recommend!

Working with Vikki Davis was an absolute pleasure. They were professional, responsive on the weekends, and incredibly knowledgeable about the market. They made the entire process seamless, from finding listings that matched my criteria to negotiating a great deal. I couldn’t be happier with my new home and highly recommend Vikki to anyone looking for top-notch real estate service!

My family and I were so lucky to find Nancy at Eric Bramlett. She happened to be covering for another agent when we first toured a home of our interest, but we were so happy that she ended up being the one to work with us! My mother is not the easiest to work with, but Nancy immediately connected with her and has been so incredibly patient and kind along this journey. Nancy always provided us the best and most up to date information on the market and our prospective homes. She drove wherever we needed her to be at a time that was always convenient for us. Through this time, we’ve been so lucky to get to know her, and she is one of the sweetest individuals we’ve had the pleasure to meet. I’m sure we’ve also made a lifelong friend through this experience 🙂 Will 100% recommend this real estate company and Nancy to all our good friends and family looking for a home!

My husband and I worked with Kasey Gilliam and Kim Jowers to find our first home. We had no idea where to start, but they were able to smoothly guide us through the entire process. We are super grateful they were able to share their extensive knowledge with us. They were able to answer any questions we had no matter how silly they were. We will definitely be working with them again in the future and will be referring them to friends & family searching for a home in the Austin area!

Our agent Patrick Hallett is an excellent communicator – warm demeanor, quick to respond, and clear communication. His knowledge of the market immediately gave us confidence that he would guide us in the right direction. We also had good experiences with the inspector and lender he recommended. Our process was quick and smooth with Patrick’s guidance

Meaghan Marks was not only my realtor, but my biggest advocate and support while selling 2 of my homes at the same time. I had never sold a house before, so having a realtor that held my hand was very important to me. There were struggles with the buyers, and she walked me through all the lingo and curveballs along the way, allowing me to ultimately make the best decisions for ME and my situation. Throughout the process, Meaghan not only was patient and professional, but she was kind and fun to be around, making the stressful seem seamless. If you want a friend who has your back and helps you navigate buying or selling a home, Meaghan is your girl!

Tammy was so helpful during our home buying process. We really appreciated how invested she was in us finding our first home. Would definitely recommend!

Selling our house with Bramlett Residential was a great experience. Our realtor, Craig, was not only patient and thoughtful but also an expert in our neighborhood. Throughout the process, he served as our advocate, ensuring we felt confident and supported every step of the way. Craig was a true professional, prioritizing our needs and concerns. He and the team took a lot of the stress out of the process.. I wholeheartedly recommend Bramlett Residential to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
