Common Buyer Questions
Q-Why buy instead of renting?
A-If you are renting, you are not building any equity; you are paying someone else’s mortgage. If you buy a home, you are building a legal right to possess a significant asset.
Application fee- Mortgage lenders may sometimes charge an application fee to process your request.
Appraisal fee- Mortgage lenders may have your home appraised by a professional, whose bill they then hand over to you.
Property Research – This is where we investigate the selling history of the home and the price relative to the market. To do this, an assessment of the current homes on the market and properties that have recently sold will be done. This is where our negotiating power is determined.Read More
