There’s no place like home

The “American Dream,” at least in part, is homeownership. To be in control of your own property, to make your mark on something completely your own; to decorate, repair, renovate, and simply enjoy a space made entirely for you and your loved ones. Home.

Whether you are a first-time home buyer, or a seasoned real estate investor, common concerns always arise:

  • What are the terms of an Agreement of Sale for Real Estate?
  • What do “conditions” and “contingences” mean within this contract?
  • What happens if the sale falls through? Do I owe anyone money?
  • What are my rights if the other party breaches the contract?
  • Who pays my real estate agent? What did my contract with them say?
  • How much should my earnest deposit be?
  • When I purchase a piece of property, do I automatically get the gas and minerals too?
  • Do I need a home warranty?
  • What even happens at closing?
  • I am buying a Condominium, who owns my roof?
  • What happens if I don’t pay my HOA dues on time?
  • What encumbrances are on the property?
  • I have a shared driveway, who is responsible for the maintenance?
  • What are closing costs? And how much will they be?
  • Why is my lender requiring title insurance?
  • Do I need title insurance of my own?
  • Who should I choose to do my closing? How do I decide?
