5 COMMON FIRST-TIME HOME BUYER MISTAKES that Lyn Sims at RE/MAX Suburban doesn't want her buyers to make!  Guiding her buyers with over 20 years experience, she can help you find the best home in the Northwest Suburban Chicago IL Market. 1.  They don't ask enough questions of their lender and end up missing out on the best deal. Lyn's Comments - All lenders do not carry the same financing. Some do not handle FHA loans or loans with more flexible qualifying ratios that a first-time home buyer might need in order to get into that first home.  I can point you in the right direction so you get the best financing for you.  You MUST be prequalified for a loan BEFORE you begin your home search.2.  They don't act quickly enough to make a decision and someone else buys the house. Lyn's Comments-...
