I do not charge any "transactions fees" here and there are many that do. There are plenty of costs to selling a house, but additional fees to the realtor to cover their advertising is not something I do. Call me and lets talk about selling your house.

It's not often that a home is a lease to own. BUT, what I can do is set you up with a lender who will work with you and figure out what your options are. Lease to own is not the safest bet when it comes to your money.

Please contact me and let's look at your options. The VA loan requires NO money down, did you know that?

In Michigan, licensing law does not require a builder to offer a warranty. However, the licensing law does provide for a complaint period of 18 months, during which time a homeowner may file a complaint with the State.

In San Antonio, TX. Alot of people like to see stainless steel appliances with updated kitchens and bathrooms. Attached garages are a plus but most homes have them here, if built after 1985, garage doors openers are important. Flooring, I am finding more people looking and want wood floors in the main living areas, carpet is still ok in the bedrooms.

Make sure the home is kept up real will and touched up

The problem with a builders warranty is that it's only as good as the builder behind it. Many builders go out of business or go bankrupt and leave their home owners stuck. I hope you researched the builder well and choose them for their great reputation.
Now, with every home I help buyers purchase I INSIST on a top quality independent inspection. Builders often state, "you don't need this we have a warranty" but the warranty eventually expires and flaws in construction can lead to problems way past that date. Having the home professionally inspected before you finalize your deal with the builder and requiring the issues, if any that the inspector uncovers be resolved before you finalize the deal should be your next step.
