Q: Should I buy or continue to rent?

A: This is a question that many people face when they are trying to decide whether to buy or continue renting. There are pros and cons to both choices, and it ultimately comes down to what is best for your individual situation. If you are looking for stability and the ability to build equity, then buying may be the right choice for you. However, if you are not ready to commit to a long-term mortgage or you do not have the down payment for a home, then renting may be the better option.

Q: Should I talk with a bank or lender before looking at homes?

A: It is always a good idea to speak with a bank or lender before you start looking at homes. They can help you to determine how much you can afford to spend and what kind of loan would be best for your situation. This way, you will know what price range to look in when you are searching for homes.

Q: Who pays the Realtor fees when buying a home, what other costs will I have?

A: In most cases, the seller of the home will pay the Realtor fees. However, there are other costs associated with buying a home that you will need to be aware of. These include things like closing costs, Homeowners Association (HOA) fees, and property taxes. Be sure to ask your Realtor for a complete list of all the costs you will need to pay when buying a home.

Q: How do I know how much house can I afford to buy?

A: This is a great question to ask your bank or lender. They will be able to help you determine how much you can afford to spend based on your income and debts. Additionally, there are online calculators that can help you to get an idea of how much house you can afford.

Q: Do I really need a Realtor when buying a home?

A: While you are not required to use a Realtor when buying a home, it is highly recommended. A good Realtor will be able to help you find homes that meet your criteria, negotiate on your behalf, and handle all of the paperwork involved in the home buying process.

Q: I own a home, should I buy another before selling my current home?

A: This is a difficult question to answer without knowing your specific situation. You will need to take into consideration things like the housing market, your financial situation, and your job security. It is always a good idea to speak with a real estate agent or financial advisor before making any decisions.
