Congratulations on finding a home of your interest. Do you mind me asking what county the home is in? Also, do you know if the seller had an appraisal done on the property? If not, I highly recommend you do an appraisal before buying the home so you can know the true property value. So many individuals make the mistake of finding out the value later, when their taxes are to high. If you aren't familiar with an appraisal, an appraisal can help you make the best offer and possibly save money as well as lower your mortgage payments if you believe they have increased.
If you would like more information on an appraisal, or would like to speak with someone directly, give us a call at (404) 955-9997.
