ABSOLUTELY get a home inspection BEFORE you close. I had a newly constructed home by a reputable builder install a defective, warped, rotted TRUSS! Luckily my home inspector caught this mistake. It could have resulted in a catastrophic life threatening event.

You have leverage "before" you close to have any repairs done so don't give up your bargaining power by closing and then waiting and waiting for the builder to repair "after closing".

All the best,

Ok, if you are both qualifying together, you should have an equally great score or it may raise the rate and hurt him.

Assuming you both have similiar scores and are putting 20% down, you should qualify for a great interest rate. If you do a 15 year note, the rate will be lower than if you do a 30 year note. As far as buying a lower rate with points, I would advise against it. There are times where there will be benefit if the points are low for a large change in interest rate and you plan on occupying for many years, but usually the break even time is years.

Rates are so low right now and with 20% down and mid-700 scores, you should both be in great shape for low to mid 3% rates. Good Luck.

Thank you for your question. The assessed value or tax value, plays little or no part in the market value price of a home. The appraised value, as given by a certified appraiser, is what will determine market value for a lender that is considering loaning money on the home in the form of a mortgage. Actual market value is whatever a buyer is willing to pay for the home.
Making an offer to a seller is a balancing act at times. I always suggest that you, as a buyer, make an offer that works for YOU. The seller will then let you know what will work for THEM. This will be in the form of an acceptance or a counter-offer.
I hope this helps.

What does your buyer agent suggest? Do you really want a price from an anonymous agent that may or may not know the area?

Select a buyer agent, and then ask them. You then have someone you can rely on for accurate information.

If you are interested in contacting me, please feel free to call or email me directly and I would be happy to discuss what I can do for you.

239-246-6539 or

Good luck
