How to find an excellent home inspector for a real estate sale

As you prepare to buy or sell a home, there is a very important aspect of the transaction that should never be overlooked — the home inspection. All properties must be properly inspected prior to signing contracts in real estate transactions. The reason for this is so any issues found can be disclosed and repaired prior to new ownership taking over. Here's how you can find an excellent home inspector.

Things to consider before buying your first home

Are you in the market for a home? Are you in the market for your first home? If you answered yes to these questions, there are some things you need to take into consideration before coming to an agreement with the seller. Be sure you take a long look at all of these considerations so you can come to an informed decision about the purchase and whether or not now is the right time for you to buy a home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

What common problems can arise at closing on a house?

You've probably heard an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That is perhaps no truer than when you are buying or selling a home in Florida. Regardless of the side of the transaction you are on, there can be potential pitfalls.

The basics of zoning laws


Zoning laws are important to understand and can have a significant impact on a real estate project. In Florida and elsewhere, zoning laws are important to real estate transactions because they govern the use of land. Zoning laws are used to control and direct how property is developed and can impact a property owner's rights to use their property.

What can homeowner associations regulate?

If you are looking to buy a new home, there are lots of styles of homes to choose from these days. Whether you are looking for a condominium, a plot of land or even a nice family neighborhood, there are lots of options to suit just about any type of buyer. When looking for a home in a neighborhood, it's important to know that some neighborhoods, and other types of housing, are subject to homeowner association regulations. These regulations could impact the buyer greatly.

Real estate documents are important to real estate transactions


Having the right real estate documents, that have been negotiated effectively and drafted accurately and in compliance with relevant laws, can be essential to the success of a real estate project. A real estate contract includes the terms of the particular real estate transaction but also includes many other important concerns between the parties.

Why the real estate market is still strong in Florida


Although the last real estate bust almost a decade ago was not kind to many Florida residents, the real estate market has recovered significantly since then. There have been mixed reactions and comments about the current state of real estate in Florida and throughout the United States. But statistics do not lie.

Things to keep in mind while selling your home


Selling a home is not easy. Unless you are a professional or have experience selling houses in the past, it can seem like an incredibly intimidating endeavor. Making certain that you have all the appropriate and necessary paperwork is essential to making certain that your transition is smooth, legal and free of potentially damaging errors. Such errors could cause not only delays in processing a transaction, but could potentially cost you a substantial amount of money.

Identify potential risks when involved in a short sale


There is a common phrase we often hear throughout life: "If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is." While of course there are always exceptions to be made regarding any deal, it is still often the case. Take the "short sale," for example.

How can I get a good deal while buying in a short sale?


A prospective buyer is always looking for a good deal for buying a house. In this housing market, many Fort Lauderdale residents may find themselves considering buying a short sale house, as it often presents itself as a good deal. A short sale is where the house is for sale by owner at a rate lower than the amount owed. This usually happens when the house's value has fallen. A short sale happens with the lender's permission, as the lender is usually not getting all his money back.
