Buying a house is a very personal decision, which makes this answer unique to you. The size, location, number of bedrooms, backyard space and amenities will all be dependent on your unique lifestyle, family, needs, and budget.
To get you on the right track, start by tackling your budget. If you’re planning on getting a mortgage, Heidi can get you in touch with a preferred lender partner. Whether you work through a referral or find one on your own, talk to a lender to request a pre-approval letter, which will tell you the maximum amount that the lender will loan you. This is an important step to set a budget that you’ll feel confident in.
Once you know the budget you qualify for, create a wish list of what you want in your house, what you don’t want, and what you’re negotiable on. From there, meet with Heidi to discuss your options and get started on the home buying process!
This answer depends on a few factors, including time of year, state of market (hello, pandemic!) and overall supply and demand in the specific Silicon Valley area you’re looking to purchase in. On average it takes home buyers 10 weeks to get under agreement on a property, and another 30-45 days to close.

No, you don't! The more you can put down, the more competitive your offer will be, but many purchasers put less than 10%, with programs available that allow home buyers to put as little as 3.5% down (or even 0% if you are a veteran).
A buyer's agent is usually FREE to hire in most situations! As part of the seller's expenses, virtually every property listed on MLS will include a commission for both the buyer and seller’s agents, which means you don’t pay a cent. There are rare occasions when a home does not have a buyer's agent fee, such as a house for sale by owner. You would be informed of what the commission would be prior to being shown the property.
The greatest time to purchase a house is when you're prepared and ready to buy! In the spring/summer, there are usually more properties available as well as increased competition. Low interest rates are fantastic, but they typically come with higher home prices due to increased demand. The best time to buy a house in Silicon Valley is the one that fits your schedule!
