Make sure you get a home inspection....and not from a person recomended by the seller. And follow them through the inspection to make sure they are thourogh..

Avoid anything with a termite infestation, or foundation problems......ir with a real midew/mold issue...Those can be ungodly expensive to correct or repair.

And Make certain you get Title insurance.....

Have a parent come with you..someone disinterested that can offer opinion from their perspective......why? Becasue buying a house can be a very emotionally driven thing....take my word on that....having someone not involved is a good way to counter things you may miss in your entusiasm..
