First Time Home Buyer in Lancaster, PA


Buying your first home in lancaster, PA

Buying your first home should be one of the most exciting events in your life. But a competitive market and a complicated real estate industry can turn it into an exhausting process. We’ve been there! That’s why we take extra time with every first-time homebuyer to make sure the process is as positive and rewarding as possible. Our main goal is to make sure you get exactly what you need (and want) for this new stage in your life. 

We make this experience better by honestly telling it like it is, not trying to impress or persuade you with fancy sales tactics. Our goal is simple: to help you find your ideal home and get the best possible price.

How to Choose an Agent when Buying our First Home

To start, using our services will not cost you anything. As a buyer,  you do not need to pay for our services. After the house is sold, at closing, our service fees will be paid by the sellers.

Look for Local Connections

You will have the upper hand in a competitive market by choosing an agent, like Matt, with strong local connections. Buyer's agents who are well connected have access to houses that are not yet on the market. In some cases, transactions occur before a home is even listed for sale.

Find an Agent Who Will Take Their Time With You

We will walk you through the home-buying process so you know what to expect. Then we take time to get to know you and what you want in a home. After that, we will work together to set a reasonable budget, ensuring that you get a house you can afford. Then, when we look at houses together, we will point out little details that can make or break your homeownership experience.

Choose a Strong Negotiator

One of the most challenging and stressful aspects of the home-buying process is making an offer and negotiating with a seller. We have gone through this process many times and are well-versed in all the tricks of the trade. We will do extensive analyses going into the offer process to assist you in determining the value of similar houses, and we will help you determine the best bidding and negotiating approach. As a result, you'll be able to find the ideal property at an affordable price.

The Home Buying Process


We dedicate time to getting a clear understanding of your needs, likes, and dislikes so we can find you a property that you will love. We begin by learning about your goals, budget, and house needs. As we search for your new home, We will help you consider all of the factors that come into play – from location and budget to investment potential, turn-key vs. fixer-upper requirements, and more.


This step is more than looking for houses; it's finding your home. Once the house search has begun, we provide you with all the latest listings, we offer recommendations based on your feedback, and we conduct intensive research before showing you homes that match your requirements and are also within your price range.


You want agents like the Matt Weaver Group on your side. We are experienced negotiators, and we will tirelessly work to make sure you get the best price for your home. We have helped dozens of other home buyers purchase their ideal property at affordable prices. We will do everything necessary to ensure your comfort level with the arrangement, as well as secure the best possible investment price for your first property.

Matt helped us learn that we needed to build a home to get exactly what we wanted. He guided us through every step of the process and supported us throughout our build. We always felt that Matt had our backs. The advise he gave us was insightful and made the entire experience easier. We enjoyed his sense of humor and kindness. We highly recommend Matt for anybody interested in buying, building or selling a home. His professionalism and attention to details makes him the perfect choice.
