Buying a Home
Are you looking to buy a home, but don’t know where to start? Are you ready to buy? Have you decided to do it by yourself? While buying a home is certainly an exciting time in one’s life, it can also be the most stressful.
Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime… transactions that typically exceed $100,000.
Consider for a moment that you receive notice from the IRS regarding a problem with your taxes. A problem that could cost you $100,000. Would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a CPA? If you had a $100,000 legal question, would you solve it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost (for sellers) and the large downside risk, it would be careless to consider a deal in real estate without the professional assistance of a REALTOR®.
