Home Buying Information

Buying a Home

Buying a home can be one of your most significant investments in life. Not only are you choosing your dwelling place, and the place in which you will bring up your family, you are most likely investing a large portion of your assets into this venture. The more prepared you are at the outset, the less overwhelming and chaotic the buying process will be. The goal of this page is to provide you with detailed information to assist you in making an intelligent and informed decision. Remember, if you have any questions about the process, we’re only a phone call or email away!


Whether this is your first time to buy a home or 10th time to buy a home, if its been more than 24 months, you’ll likely benefit from CHERIN’S free, no obligation, one-hour Home Buying Made Easy class (although it’s more like a really good talk about the process and what to expect more than it is a class).  And be sure to let us know on the contact form if you prefer wine or coffee!   


What should we do first, what is the best website to use when searching for homes, how much down payment is required, how much will my closing costs be, maybe I want to buy a brand new home or build a brand new home, what if the home doesn’t make appraisal, what if the inspection report reads like a horror novel, what are upfront costs, what if the roof needs to be replaced and the seller says, no. 

There are literally a million questions that could keep any prospective home buyer awake at night surfing the net for answers.  Make it easy on yourself, contact CHERIN today and let her answer your question.
