Did You Know? Facts About Real Estate

Buying and Selling Real Estate in Lexington MA can be confusing and just plain overwhelming.  I love working with informed clients.  I find that our transactions go much more smoothly when we all understand the process and we're all on the same page.  Here are just a few facts about real estate that you might not be aware of it.

  • Did you know that one of the major reasons homes don't sell is because potential buyers can't see themselves in the home?  Try staging your home to be as generic as possible.
  • Did you know that when selling a home, some closing costs can be negotiated as part of the contract? A Real Estate Agent can guide you to the best option for your situation.
  • Not all home improvements add value to your home.  In fact, some "improvements" actually detract from the overall value of the property. Check with your Real Estate before making any major home improvements.
  • Did you know that a 20% down payment is not always a requirement for a home mortgage?  There are numerous loan programs that allow buyers to get a loan for less that 20%. I an help you find one of those programs.
  • Did you know that all of the interest you pay toward your home mortgage is tax deductible? That means you could pay less for your home then you are currently paying for rent in Lexington MA.
  • Most lenders require a title insurance policy on the property?  Lenders require this to protect their investment in your loan. I work with several companies that can facilitate this requirement.
