  Did you know that apprx 90% of buyers start their home search online?   Not too long ago newspaper and magazine ads were the driving force behind how most buyers started their home search. The internet IS now the driving force behind how home buyers are looking for homes. Because of this change in pattern, it is important to have a Realtor who is proficient in online marketing and social media.     So the next time you decide to sell, remember you deserve a Realtor who will do more than just put up a For Sale sign.

I always get asked this question . . . what are closing costs? and are closing cost are necessary? Closing costs are a part of all real estate transactions. My easiest explanation for closing costs are that they are two-fold. The first part of closing costs are third-party legal fees.These things only happen one time when you initially purchase your home. Such things include title fees, escrow fees, lender fees, and appraisal. The second part of closing costs are things that happen over and over or you might hear them being refereed to as recurring costs. These items include taxes, insurance, and prorated interest. Closing cost can be safely be estimated about 3% of purchase prices from 250k -400k and 4-5% with prices around 100k. I hope I've answered your questions on the subject . . W...
