Nearly there. We enjoyed hosting our friends from Denmark last week. The “Beast”, our car, has new tyres, new brakes and had a full service. Annoyingly, the work on the house drags on into another week, but the end is surely in sight. The corporate stuff is…well, corporate. Time for “Deep Work”, a phrase that […]

Why should I buy, instead of rent?
You will love the feeling of having something that is all yours – a home where your own personal style will tell the world who you are. A thriving vegetable garden in the backyard, a tiled entryway, a yellow kitchen… when you own, you can do it all your way! However, there is more to owning a home than personal satisfaction. You can deduct the cost of your mortgage loan interest from your federal income taxes, and usually from your state taxes, too. And interest will compose nearly all of your monthly payment, for over half the number of years you’ll be paying your mortgage. This adds up to hefty savings at the end of each year. Moreover, you are allowed to deduct the property taxes you pay as a homeowner. If you rent, you write your monthly check and it is gone forever. Another financial plus in owning a home is the possibility its value will go up through the years.
Should I use a Buyer’s Agent? How do I find one?
Using a Buyer’s Agent is a very good idea. All the details involved in home buying, particularly the financial ones, can be overwhelming. A good real estate professional can guide you through the entire process and make the experience much easier. A Buyer’s Agent will be well acquainted with all the important things you will want to know about a neighborhood you may be considering…the quality of schools, the number of children in the area, the safety of the neighborhood, traffic volume, and more. He or she will help you figure the price range you can afford and search the classified ads and multiple listing services for homes you will want to see. With immediate access to homes as soon as they are put on the market, the broker can save you hours of wasted driving-around time. When it is time to make an offer on a home, the Buyer’s Agent can point out ways to structure your deal to save you money. He or she will explain the advantages and disadvantages of different types of mortgages, guide you through the paperwork, and be there to hold your hand and answer last-minute questions when you sign the final papers at closing. In addition, you do not have to pay the Buyer’s Agent anything! The payment comes from the home seller – not from the buyer.
Real Estate 101 Financing
Most all of us will need to finance our home purchase. A very important part of purchasing a home is finding the right lender for you. Here we present some characteristics, which you should look for when choosing and evaluating a lender.
Remember that not only is the lender going to require a pre-qualification process from you before authorizing a mortgage loan – but also that this is a two-way street, and that you will be evaluating the lender to determine if they are the best source for your business. There are also a few things you should be aware of concerning lenders, and we tell you what to look out for.
Questions you should ask or consider when shopping for a lender:
What is his/her reputation within the community?
Approximately how many loans do they close each year?
