Draper, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/17/2013 -- Barbara Corcoran’s credentials include straight D’s in high school and college and twenty jobs by the time she turned twenty-three. It was her next job that would make her one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country when she took a $1000 loan to start The Corcoran Group. As one of the “Sharks” on ABC’s hit TV show, SHARK TANK, Barbara has ponied up her own money and invested in more than a dozen businesses, competing to make those deals for all to see, then shepherding them to success. Her newest book, SHARK TALES, takes you behind the scenes of her life and business and her ‘seen on TV’ venture capitalism. Barbara is famously brash and blunt, bold and courageous, and a brilliant identifier of opportunity and talent (often invisible to others). (barbaracorcoran.com)

Purchasing a home is exciting but there's a lot to consider. Take time to define your search parameters like price range, location preference, type of ownership (co-op, condo, etc.), size of property and building amenities, if applicable. Prioritize your needs (i.e., space, light, views, schools, etc.) but try to be flexible. In evaluating your budget, know what you can spend on a down payment as well as monthly expenditures like maintenance or common charges, real estate taxes, monthly mortgage, utilities, parking, etc. Find the right real estate agent to help navigate you through the process, speak with a mortgage lender to obtain written pre-approval for a loan, and choose an attorney experienced in NYC real estate.

Buying a home is not only an important financial decision but a major life decision as well. Nothing says more about who one is or how one lives so one needs to make sure that their real estate agent is someone who understands them and their needs. Begin by asking friends who've used agents for referrals. Choose a professional who specializes in homes in their price range and desired neighborhood(s); someone who's available to work on their schedule, who listens to their needs, asks a lot of questions about how one lives and takes time to explain things they may not understand. Finding a new home should be an exciting and enjoyable process but it is also time consuming, one should look for someone whose company they enjoy - they will likely be spending a lot of time together.
