Free Money For Your Mortgage

Home buyers today have a huge advantage when it comes to starting their home search. There are so many tools and resources to educate yourself and know what you want, before you even step into the home of your dreams.

But the one thing that hasn’t changed is the very important step of talking to a lender before you start your search. I say this mainly because, you just don’t know what programs and free money you might be eligible for if you don’t ask.

New Construction: Should You Go Builder Grade Or Upgrade? - Realty Times

Have a REALTOR come with you when you are buying a new home. It doesn't cost you anything and they will be able to give you advice on where it make sense to upgrade and where you shouldn't.

Who hasn't walked through a model home and thought, 'I'll take it! Even down to those fancy place settings on the dining room table!' That exclamation is typically followed by a sad-face realization that, A) The place settings are not for sale, and; B) All those fancy upgrades are going to cost you....

No Perfect Home Exists: What You Should Know About Home Inspections - Realty Times

The market is really competitive in the First Time Buyer market, but you should never forgo the Home Inspection. Not only will you learn if there are any major problems but you will learn so much about the home and how to maintain it. Expect to find minor issues in every home, but you can also walk away from the deal if there are major problems you don't want to deal with.

If you're buying a home, start with a reasonable expectation of what home inspectors can do. Their job is to inform you about the integrity and condition of what you're buying, good and bad.

Escalation Clauses: A Little-Known Bidding-War Strategy

The Escalation Clause can be a great tool in our competitive market right now. But there are other things a buyer can do to make their offer stand out, because it isn't always about the highest price. Buyers should be very flexible with closing date to try to accommodate the seller and possibly even offer *free* rent-back to the sellers if that is something they need. Always ask your agent for guidance but you can get creative to make your offer stand out among many.

For home buyers locked in a heated bidding war, there is one weapon that may help ensure victory: an escalation clause.
