When you buy a home, you need to know exactly what you’re buying. Imagine how frustrated you’d be to find out that the hot water heater wasn’t working—in the middle of a shower! This is why you should have a home inspection before you buy your home. A home inspection is an important part of buying your home. Before you hire a home inspector, ask candidates a few questions to make sure you hire a trustworthy inspector. 1.What does your inspection cover? Not all inspections are the same. Ask for copies of previous home inspections so you can see exactly what they will check inside the [city] home. If you are concerned about something specific, like a leaky faucet in the bathroom, mention that to the inspector so they can check it out. 2.Are you licensed or certified? If you live in a state that licenses home inspectors, ask to see their license. At the very least, choose a home inspector who belongs to American Society of Home Inspectors. This shows a level of professionalism and education that you can trust. 3.What kind of report will you give me? You should expect a written report detailing what the inspector found. Most inspectors will give you a typed report within a week of the inspection. Make sure the inspector will be available to explain anything on the report that doesn’t make sense to you. 4.Will I be able to attend the inspection? If the inspector refuses to let you be present during the home inspection, find someone else. This is your chance to know exactly what you are buying and what potential repairs you or the seller will have to make. As your real estate agent, I will guide you through the home buying process.

Buying a home is a very important decision, one that should not be taken lightly! With so much involved in the process, you need the best agent by your side possible. There can be many hurdles, roadblocks, twists, turns and stress's on the way that can make or break a deal and mean the difference between getting you into your dream home or not. Having an agent is like having another person added to your family, the amount of time that you will spend together, converse daily, and have that person help you through it all, you need to know you have someone great by your side! Make sure that your personalities click, your trust each other, and that it is someone you can have a long term relationship with happily because your Realtor often can be a part of your life for a long time!

The bank wants it to look and feel as if the seller is paying all of your closing costs, but here is the deal. They really are not and here is why:
Many consumers skip around from agent to agent, not really understanding how the process works and also not realizing that they only need one agent....Thats right, one agent can show you any property listed by ane agent or broker anywhere in the area and beyond!
