What is a Seller's Disclosure?


temp-post-image

A seller disclosure is a document the seller must give the buyer that discloses all of their knowledge of the condition of the property and any material defects.



If your home has any issues that you know of – whether you call it “character” or a nuisance – you have to share that information with the purchaser on the seller disclosure.


My advice? Don’t try to be the person who withholds information about their home. When the truth is revealed, it could lead to legal problems. *womp womp*


Have questions about what you do and don’t have to disclose on your home? Send me a message!

What is Going on With Rising Interest Rates?


temp-post-image



Can I shoot straight with you? Mortgage interest rates are going up. They’ve jumped from 3% to 5% for a lot of buyers – yes, even well-qualified buyers. So what does this mean for you?


If you’re looking to buy a home, you need to lock in your interest rates NOW!


If you’ve been looking for a home with not a ton of success, talk to your lender to see what you can do to ensure your rates don’t skyrocket if/when you have to get pre-approved again.


Truth be told, I don’t know how high interest rates are going to climb. In the past they’ve reached 2 digits.


I know the market can feel tough right now but what’s going to feel even more difficult is gett...

Real Estate Q&A


OMG YOU GUYS! I have to tell you, the other day, I was talking to someone who wanted to buy a house but didn’t have tens of thousands of dollars to put down on a house. Then I told them the news. ❗ Depending on your mortgage type, you may only need 3% down to buy a house❗ A 20% down payment on a $300k house is $60k. That’s a LOT! However, 3% down is only $9k. Much better, right? If this is piquing your curiosity about homebuying, send me a message! I’d love to answer any questions you have!
