Buying or selling a home is one of the most important financial decisions you’ll ever make, and the real estate agent you choose to help you is going to make all the difference! But with a market flooded with Realtor and real estate agent options, how do you choose? Here are the most important boxes to check in the process: 

1. Make sure the agent is full-time, not one who does real estate part time on the side

You want to choose an agent that is fully invested in their business, and therefore, you! Someone who does real estate on the side is not going to be fully committed to working for you and will instead have other things—like their full-time gig—taking priority. 

2.  Avoid hiring a relative

It can get a little personal when you mix…

If you were looking to buy a home or refinance, you might want to start thinking seriously about it soon! 

Mortgage rates are holding at a low for 2017, with a 30-year fixed loan at 4% interest. To put it into perspective, the average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage in June 1987 was 10.54%!

Although not the lowest they’ve been this year, this rate is exceptional, and it seems to be holding for the time being. However, the lack of movement by fixed mortgage rates may be the pause before they begin to ascend once again.

You also don’t have to be a true handyman to do all of these projects. With a little effort and money, you can make a huge difference! 

1. Make sure your kitchen is cooking

In terms of sale value, one thing that can really make or break a home is the kitchen! The kitchen is thought of as the heart of the home, so if it isn’t up to snuff, it can really devalue your home. One thing you can work on is giving outdated cabinets a new appeal with a crisp white semi-gloss paint. For a little elbow grease and a bucket of paint, you can totally transform your kitchen.
