Common Questions Asked by Buyers

I want to buy a home. Where do I start?  This article will give you all the information you need to start your home buying process.

Hiring a Real Estate Appraiser

Remember, an appraiser values a home whereas an inspector lets you know of the physical condition of the home, so you will most likely need to hire both when you are looking to buy a home. If you need any help, do not hesitate to ask Royal Lepage Network Realty for help and Advice

What To Offer

Many factors come into play in the initial offer. Some say always offer 10% less. Unfortunately, this route could end you up in second place on that competitively priced "perfect" home for your needs. And, second place is no fun. Too low of an initial offer could insult the Seller. Read more on what to offer for your dream house!

Home Inspections

It's important to hire a knowledgeable, independent home inspector for advice on the overall condition of the property. Many companies specialize in only one area of inspection, and others will group several together and offer a package price.

Homeowners Insurance

When buying a home, one word you will hear often is insurance. Insurance is the type of service you buy hoping that you will never have to use it. The right insurance can give you a sense of security in knowing that you are adequately protected.

Title Insurance

Generally, there are two forms of title insurance. Lender's title insurance, required by most lending institutions, is normally written in the amount of the mortgage and protects the lending institution from losses resulting from title defects.

Why Use a CRS?

Home buyers and sellers need a professional with unique training and know-how to create opportunities, identify potential pitfalls up front, and make the transaction an unqualified success. Home buyers and sellers need a Certified Residential Specialist.
