How much does it cost to buy a home? While buyers are typically well aware of the price tag in terms of the down payment and the overall cost of the mortgage, they frequently forget to take closing costs into account. These costs, which range from lender's fees to property taxes, are easy to forget about since they aren't assessed until the day of closing. But even though they represent a small portion of the overall price of the home, it's important to know how much they'll be, how you're going to pay them, and whether you can reduce them at all.
It's no surprise that many home buyers rely on technology to power their home search, from connecting with real estate agents through social media to taking virtual tours of homes that catch their eye. But did you know you can now start the search for Brighton homes for sale, simply by using your voice? At Griffith Realty, we love using technology to make your life easier while shopping for a home, which is why we're excited to be one of the first real estate businesses in Michigan to offer Voiceter Pro. Our REALTORS® have all of the details on this exciting tool, and on why we find it so important to offer you the latest real estate technology.
When you're searching for a home in the mid-Michigan area, living in the "big city" may not be what you're looking for. Metro areas like Flint, Detroit, Ann Arbor, and Lansing might appeal to some buyers, but if your heart is drawn to small-town living, then one of our homes for sale in Fenton could be for you.
Fenton's tagline, "Be Closer in Fenton" initially confused many locals and visitors when it was unveiled in 2010. The meaning of Fenton's slogan is two-fold: 1) Be Closer to those things in your life that matter--family, values, roots, community and 2) Be Closer to larger cities without ever leaving your own close-knit community.
Our REALTORS® live and work in this community and know you'll love our city as much as we do when you move here.
Sometimes the housing market favors buyers, and sometimes if favors sellers. The only certainty is that no matter who the market is leaning toward today, it's bound to change.
But that's not much comfort if you're ready to buy a home, and it's currently a seller's market. Our REALTORS® are here to help with your home search no matter what the market says, and these tips will give you a leg up if you're buying a home in a seller's market.
