Three important reminders to make your home purchase successful!

Important items to remember when buying a home

When you purchase your home remember to always:

1. Ask for some or all of your closing costs, which are associated with your loan to be covered by the seller. Whether you are a conventional buyer or going with an FHA loan, you should always ask to have some costs associated with purchasing a home to be covered by the seller.

2. Get a home inspection.  Even when the property is new construction, it is important to have a home inspection to make sure there are no hidden issues that could cost you down the road.

3.Get an attorney - representation is crucial to a successful deal.  Why would you not have representation when making perhaps the biggest purchase of your life?
