SUSAN'S TIP: Ask what loan type is best for you and what are the qualifications and down payment, not just the rate of interest.  You also need to know approximate closing costs and pre-paid costs.  Don't be shy - if you do not understand some of the terminology ... ask for an explanation you do understand!   Knowledge is Power and it will relieve undue stress.  And, I'm always available should you wish to ask me any question about financing!

SUSAN'S TIP: 
Buying a New Home / Getting a New Loan? DO NOT get an appraisal - lender will.  
Thinking of Selling Your Home?   You may wish to have an appraiser measure the house for accurate living and total areas, but an appraisal is not necessary.   
**  Part of my listing service is helping sellers determine the best price for their
      market.  Appraisals are only good for 6 months, but I am constantly watching
      the market in my sellers areas.

House Call Inspections
Johnny Joyner ..... Inspector

   ** Mechanical, Systems, Entire General Condition; Free Termite Inspections

SUSAN'S TIP:  As part of a purchase agreement, a Buyer has the right to have any and all parts of a home inspected.  Inspectors generally cover everything mechanical in a home, roof condition, and the like, but be sure to ASK QUESTIONS about what all  each company includes, as they can vary.  Since January 2008, either the buyer or seller can have a termite inspection performed, so ask if that is included.  Inspectors don't usually inspect "Independent Sewer Systems" and a Buyer may ask the Seller to perform these inspections or hire a contractor of their choice.
