Real Estate Myth Week 45

THIS IS FALSE! Most lenders allow the use of gift funds and taking money from your 401k to use towards a home purchase. Not all lenders work with down payment assistance programs but they are available and are easier to qualify for then you would think!

Real Estate Myth Week 40

Realtors wear SO MANY hats during the sale of a home! They are handling negotiations, important contract dates, paperwork, making sure you as a seller know your rights and understand every step of your home sale, handle marketing, showings and communication between title companies, lenders, appraisers, inspectors and the buyers agent.

Builders do not give you a discount for not using a realtor. Remember it is FREE to use a realtor when buying a home so take advantage of their knowledge! Builders factor realtor commission in when they price homes.
