In 2020, first time home buyers make up 33% of the buying market. That’s a large group! So, there’s a good chance you’ll work with some, or already are. Understandably, this category needs a different type of support from their real estate agents. Here’s how you can help them and make the most out of your client relationships:

When Ed Averette bought his first home, he, like many new homebuyers, didn’t know much about the process. He didn’t ask all the questions he should have, he made mistakes, but this learning experience became a growing experience. It inspired him to become a real estate agent, so he could help ensure others knew anything and everything. And for the past 13 years, he’s been doing just that.
