Buying a Home

Buying a home is very exciting.  How often do you go through this process?  I can help you understand what sellers are legally required to disclose and what the Sellers can keep to themselves.

I will share industry trends, interpret statistics and advise you regarding the long-term value of the home you are considering.

Inspections

Buying a home is significant.  You would not buy a car without driving it first; so you as a Buyer are entitled to 'Kick the Tires' and 'go for a Drive'. 

The type of inspection performed are dependent on the property.  Commonly performed inspections are General House Inspection, Radon Testing, Sewer Scope.  A condo would not have a sewer scope inspection performed; however purchasing rural property you may want water test and septic tank/field inspection.

Every property is unique.  I like to discuss options with my clients.

Financing

The housing market in Oregon is competitive.  I recommend a Buyer acquire their financing BEFORE house hunting has started.   Are you looking for Conventional?  FHA?  VA?  USDA? Please ask me or see my article on Financing Requirements.
