I do many first time buyers John. I just explain everything in an elementary way and tell them they can call me day or night and I will walk them through everything. I have had pretty good results.

Yes I give them a packet that includes Real Estate terms, what the home inspection is about etc.  The packet is something they can read at home.  I also go over budgeting for buying a home, escrow account and more.

Early in the process I explain the phases of the home buying process. Details are provided for the phase they are currently in, and how their preparation now will prove critical in the latter stages.

I find if you do a full dump, the misinformation they retrieved from the dark side and all the TV reality make-believe shatters their confidence making all the months of preparation they invested before calling a whole lot useless.

So I stick to bite-size instruction relevant to what they are currently engaged in.

Good morning John. I spend a lot of time with first time home buyers as I take them through the pre-qualification process, but no materials.

I have a specific lender for first time home buyers who educates them through videos, with me following up after each. Works very well as we answer questions before they're asked!

At this point my method is kind of a hybrid of functionally practices that intrinsically work and ones that I try on a case-by-case basis.

I tend to explain things a little at a time. I find when you offer too much information at once, the buyers' eyes glaze ove. I tend to do it chunk by chunk, week by week.
