Buying a Home, but Confused about Closing Cost?

 

Good Day All, 

I hope everyone is having a great week and a great start to September! Lately, I’ve heard so many home buyers say that they’re confused with how much money they will need to purchase a home. Or that they didn’t realize that they would have “closing cost” and fee’s associated with purchasing a home. 

Aside from your down payment amount, you will have other expenses or “closing cost” to cover property taxes, homeowners insurance, appraisal, survey, etc. Having a reputable lender working on your side makes all the difference! Amber Maurer with Success Mortgage Partners has created this display to help you understand your down payment amount, closing cost and fees associated with purchasing a home.

Importance of a Final Walk Through!

 

Good Day All, 

I hope everyone is having a great week! I’m sure if you have kids this week has been long, challenging and exhausting when getting the kids back to school. Today, I wanted to talk to you about an important step when you’re purchasing a home. It should be the step right before you go to closing! The Final Walk Through! I cannot stress enough how important it is to do a walk through of the home right before closing. Below are some of the reasons why…

  • Property Condition- Walk the Exterior and the Interior of home.  Make sure that the interior is broom swept and make sure all debris is removed from the exterior of the home. 
  • Appliances- Make sure refrigerator, range, dishwasher, microwave, washer & dryer (if included with the sale) are all in working order. You can always reference your home inspection report too. 
  • Light Fixtures- Make sure all light fixtures are present at the time of the walk through. Test each fixture to make sure they’re working. 
  • HVAC- Test the air conditioning and heating system to make sure it’s in working order. The last thing you want to do is purchase a home in Florida without air conditioning. 
  • Plumbing- Run all sinks and check for leaks under neath the cabinets. 

These are just a few of the things to check for at the final walk through. For a complete list or if you have any questions please feel free to contact us for more details. Info@Search352Homes.com or Call/Text (352) 577-9171

Hurricane Season!

 

Good Day All, 

I hope everyone is having a great week! I’m sure with all of the storms we’ve had the past week or so, two words have come to mind. HURRICANE SEASON! It’s hard to believe, but hurricane season is upon us. Are you prepared for the 2018 hurricane season? Below are a few suggestions that may help you prepare! 

  • Cash – Make sure you have plenty of cash on you. Without electricity ATM’s will not work. 
  • Batteries- Go ahead and replace batteries in all of your flashlights. Purchase extra batteries for back up. 
  • Medications- Make sure prescriptions are up to date and you have at least a 7 day supply. 
  • Radio- Most use cell phones and tablets for their radio,  but make sure you have a battery powered radio so you can keep up to date with storm pattern changes, news, etc. 
  • Food/Water- Go ahead and get a head start on a supply of non-perishable food items and plenty of water. 
  • Hygiene Items- Baby wipes, hand sanitizer, etc. Now is a good time to start collecting these items as well. 
  • Sand Bags- Marion County offers several sites to pick up sand bags. Place these at your doors, garage, etc. in case of flooding. 

There are so many other things you need to do to prepare for a hurricane. For more information and safety tips please go to marion county fl weather emergency

Are Foreclosure a Thing of the Past?

 

Good Day All,

I hope everyone has had a great week and I’m sure you’re ready for the weekend!  I just wanted to take a moment and provide you a quick real estate update on foreclosures and housing inventory!

We are no longer in a housing recession and don’t maintain an overflow of inventory of homes on the market!  Inventory is so low right now and we need more homes for sale!  An article from Florida Realtors indicates that overall foreclosures are down 78% from the peak of the
foreclosures on the market in 2010. Also, foreclosures are down 15% from year to year.

Have you been telling yourself  “There are tons of foreclosures for sale in Marion County”  or “I want to find a foreclosure because they’re a better deal”? That is simply not the case; overall inventory is low and banks know this!  Therefore, banks want to sell their properties for the same market value of a traditional re-sale.

BUYERS! –  If you are in the market to purchase, call us today! My team checks new inventory everyday and we’re constantly getting new listings to sell!  Please call and give us an opportunity to help you!

SELLERS! – If you have given any consideration to selling your home or property, NOW is the time to do so!! I have buyers just waiting for new inventory to hit the market and I would welcome the opportunity to help you!

As always, if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to help you, please  contact us today (352) 577-9171 or Info@Search352Homes.com
