Home Buyer Mistakes

There's so much information on the internet, I really think not finding a home buyer's agent that you can trust is a big one, but assuming this isn't the direction you want...

  1. Not getting an inspection - I don't care, new construction, resale even Mom's house (buying from family). Get it inspected... the piece of mind alone is worth it.  In Georgia, this will cost you roughly $500 or less.  A good report might be 50+ pages.  The key is to be informed, yet not be alarmed.  There's always things wrong with a home, there's always things that might need to be replaced in the coming months or years.  It's part of owning.

  • Year over Year Median Price increase 7%!!
