      Closing Costs are the topic of today's blog post! This is an extremely important topic, because lately I have been realizing that a lot of buyers (and some sellers) do not factor in closing costs when considering purchasing/selling a home. With these costs varying anywhere from $1000-$20,000, they are definitely something buyers should be educated on and aware of upfront. So what exactly are closing costs?    Closing costs are the fees and charges paid to finalize the purchase/sale of a home. Both sellers and buyers will incur closing costs during a transaction.

  It's the beginning of the new year, and many of you have set the goal of buying a home this year!

As we begin another year, everyone wants to know: “Where is the housing market headed in 2019?”

It’s not only buyers, sellers, and homeowners who are impacted. The real estate market plays an integral role in the overall U.S. economy.  Fortunately, key indicators point toward a stable housing market in 2019 with signs of modest growth. However, shifting conditions could impact you if you plan to buy, sell, or refinance this year.

Neighborhoods in College Station, like Alexandria, have shown a consistent trend in their average sale price – they have appreciated, meaning their values have risen over the last 5 years.  As a seller, you could have more than 40% equity in your home if you purchased your home in 2012 or earlier AND originally had a down payment of 20%… that’s huge!  Also, those values don’t include the mortgage payments you’ve been making every month.  How great is that?!

 

There are many uses for a seller’s home equity, one of the major ones being leverage for their next purchase.  For example, if you have been looking to “upgrade” or buy something more fitting for your family, you could sell your current home and use the net profits as a down
