You are wise to ask a REALROR for a market analysis of recently sold homes in your area.
Be aware, both buyers and sellers value those who can remove the uncertainty of buying and selling a home. Too often, after spending their hard earned money on inspections, appraisails and months of looking and research, the bank or lender 'discovers something' and refuses to fund the purchase.....3 days before closing!!!!
Real value would be derived if the lender porvided a 'CLEAR-TO-Close' FIRST. This means the lender has committed to lending the money BEFORE you go house shopping. NOW THAT IS REAL VALUE.
The lender has invested in you...FIRST. No playing the shell game of using the money of other people to make the fee appear less.
Give a Fort Lauderdale, Fl REALTOR a call and find out your options. Two of them provided their telephone numbers below. See how the professionals can remove the uncertainty in lending (buying) and selling process.
Best of success in your real estate choices
