Brenda Hicks of HOME says that inexperienced home buyers should always seek guidance from an impartial housing professional. “Work with a housing counselor,” she says. “Their sole focus is the home buyer’s best interest in obtaining decent, safe and affordable housing for long-term homeownership. Having a third party who does not receive commissions helping guide you through that process is important.”
