5 Myths About Buying A Home
With all the headlines and changes in the real estate market, how do you know what or who you should believe? I have 5 myths that I want to bust for you right now!
Myth #1: I need 20% down to buy a home.
That’s not the case. There are so many loan types and loan options out there, some even for zero down! You don’t know what you may be able to qualify for unless you ask the right questions and talk to the right people.
Myth #2: I’ll never qualify to buy a home.
The question to ask here is: have you asked? Have you gotten a second opinion? The right agent and lender are crucial in finding out what you qualify for, and a better agent will help steer you in the right direction!
Myth #3: This myth is in regard to selling your current home - and it is “I need to price my home with room to negotiate.”
This can be a costly myth. By hiring an experienced agent who is a Master Negotiation Expert, like I am, you can have the peace of mind knowing that the pricing of your home, and the negotiations, are in good hands!
Myth #4: The less commission I pay, the more I will make.
Have you ever heard the expression “you get what you pay for?” Well, It’s the same with agents. In fact, we routinely make our clients many thousands of dollars more than other agents in our area. That is a significant difference. You will pocket more with experience and marketing than with discount commissions.
Myth #5: All agents are the same.
Would you say that about you and your profession? NO! That’s far from the truth! Agents can have unique offerings that make them stand out from the crowd.
