4.    Start looking at homes: Browse listings online, attend open houses, and drive around neighborhoods to get a feel for the area.

5.    Find your dream home: Once you have a shortlist of homes that you like, schedule visits to see them in person.

6.    Make an offer: If you find a home that you want to buy, work with your real estate agent to make an offer to the seller.

7.    Get a home inspection: Before finalizing the sale, hire a home inspector to ensure that the home is in good condition and identify any potential issues.

8.    Close the deal: Once the inspection is complete and you and the seller have agreed on the terms, sign the closing documents and take ownership of your new home.

9.    Get insurance: Purchase homeowner's insurance to protect your investment and personal belongings.

10.Move in: Pack up your belongings, move into your new home, and start enjoying your new space.
