Home & Property Buyer FAQs
Q: Do I really need a real estate agent, broker or Realtor?
A: Yes. Real estate agents, brokers, and Realtors undergo rigorous certification courses specifically because the home buying experience is extremely complex. Much like you wouldn’t represent yourself in a court of law, Realtors represent your needs and rights when buying a home. They also keep the entire process smooth by managing copious paperwork, ensuring your home is safe and appropriately priced, and so much more.
Q: How much money do I need for a down payment?
A: Between 3% and 5% of the agreed upon purchase price is most common. However, discussing your exact finances and the real estate you’re buying is crucial to providing proper numbers.
Q: Are there other fees for buying a home other than down payment and purchase cost?
A: Yes. There are lending fees through your bank or lender, as well as closing costs. Downpayment is the biggest one to worry about though! Like everything with real estate, no two situations are completely alike, and we will astutely inform you of all costs, fees, and procedures involved.
