  3. Do your research: Look for information about the areas you are interested in, safety, schools, local amenities and real estate market conditions.

  4. Hire a real estate agent: An agent can provide valuable guidance and help you navigate the buying process.

  5. Be flexible: Be open to making compromises and considering homes that may not be an exact match but are still suitable.
