Deciding on a Lender for your Mortgage

Deciding on a Lender for your Mortgage

 

Searching for your home and touring different neighborhoods is the fun part! Figuring out how you’re going to pay for that new dream home…that can get tricky!

 Most of the time, if a transaction is going to go sideways it will be on account of the financing. It’s rare that mortgage lenders make mistakes in the days leading up to your closing (though it can happen). It’s far more likely that an issue no one could have foreseen will pop up, like an old student loan payment marked as delinquent due to a bug in their system. Your dream house hangs in the balance because of someone else’s mistake 8 months ago…

 Almost every home transaction has some bizarre little financial mystery attached to it, which

 What are Real Estate Contingencies?

 In a real estate contract, a contingency is a clause that gives either party, or both parties, the ability to back out of the contract based on certain conditions. The sale of the home or property is therefore contingent, or depending upon, those conditions. There are lots of different

What should I disclose about my property?     (what is it)?

 

What is a sellers’ disclosure?

 When someone decides to sell the home they own, they are charged with compiling a list of any conditions or facts about the home that could potentially affect its value now or in the future. The sellers’ disclosure is a list of defects the seller knows about, whether they’ve been fixed/updated or not. A seller usually makes this list available to any potential buyer at the time of closing.

 This list doesn’t typically include things a buyer would be able to see or find in an inspection; things a buyer might not find out about a home until they’ve lived in it for a period of time. This might include something like bathroom plumbing that

When buying and selling real estate, you can get hit with a lot of terminology!

What are HOAs and CDDs?

What are HOAs and CDDs?

 Duval, Clay, and St. Johns Counties all have many pre-planned communities that charge the homeowners HOA or CDD fees. These two fees can feel confusing; what is the HOA money used for and what is the CDD money used for? And why do some communities charge both?

 It’s important to know the difference between these fees and specifically how much they are in each community. Your Realtor should be giving you that information prior to shopping for homes because it could affect your ability to afford a home and its monthly payment.

What is an HOA?

HOA is short for Home Owners Association Fee. This is a fee that is determined by the governing body, or board, of the housing community in which your new home might be located.
