Hi Abby,

Getting an initial home inspection and then follow-up with a contractor is one way to do things.

Kind regards,

Call your broker. Trust me, they won't mind! Better to spend 10 minutes on the phone now, than hours trying to fix things later.

Get a better sense as to what you can afford by talking with a mortgage broker/lender.

Then you can pair up with an agent and review the inventory, get a better sense of the neighborhoods and what you like.

From there on, it's a very exciting and fulfilling process.

Barry Moon answered:
Many of my home inspectors I work with are or use to be general contractors. If your thinking about getting leads for jobs by being the inspector for the home during a sale, this is a conflict of interest. A home inspector can not perform the work they found during a inspection, the only party that can do this is the pest inspector. Hope I cleared this up about the stigma on giving them your contractors business card after a home inspection. You would have to separate the two some how or do one or the other. ... more

Josh Perkins answered:
There are many benefits of getting a low rate mortgage! ESPECIALLY when long term interest rates are so low, it makes sense to utilize leverage instead of spending all your cash. Once you spend all your cash, it's GONE, and cash can be a very nice thing to have around, for many reasons. Why not use someone else's money for very cheap, and keep your cash on the sideline? If you keep a good deal of cash on the sideline, that would allow you to buy more real estate in the future if the real estate market takes a dip. ... more

May be yes, may be not, all depends on how we think. Let's be positive and allow the contractor do his or her job, but make sure all phases of the job are inspected up to code and take all the necessary pictures. Protect yourself. ... more

Robert Spinosa answered:

Most of the buyers with whom I work would tell you that coming up with the down payment is the biggest hurdle. And, of course, there are still many buyers who think they need to come up with at least 20% to buy.

In the Bay Area and much of CA, we are actually able to permit 10% down to a purchase price of $1.5MM with some of our programs.
