Hiring An Agent

by Dawn & Peter Balzano

It is more important than ever to have a professional who truly represents your best interest. 

Here are some things to consider when hiring an agent:

  1. The offer is typically written by an agent who represents the buyer's best interests.
  2. Your listing agent will represent you, the home seller, as your exclusive sellers agent.
  3. Your listing agent will carefully go through the entire offer with you and furnish you with expert guidance and counseling.
  4. Your listing agent will help get the highest possible price for your home and do everything possible to protect you from liability.

Remember, you are depending on your listing agent to represent your best interests at all times and to be a strong negotiator on your behalf. Good guidance here can also greatly decrease the chances of litigation.

Should I Buy a Home Now?

by Dawn & Peter Balzano

I'm often asked if this is a good time to buy a home. Some clients are concerned that home prices may fall down the road, while others are convinced that home prices will go up.

Home prices are one factor in determining your cost of ownership, but so are interest rates and financing availability. Even though interest rates have fluctuated, they are still near historic lows. Since your monthly mortgage payment is a combination of paying down your principal and paying the interest owed, a one point rise in interest rates could cost tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your mortgage!

While a home is a major investment, it is also the center of your personal life. It's important to live in a home that reflects your taste and values, yet is within your financial "comfort zone." To that end, it may be more important to lock in today's relatively low interest rates while they are still available.

Please give me a call if I can be of any assistance in determining how much home you can afford in today's market.
