Frequently Asked Questions

What is an appraisal?
A home appraisal is a process through which a real estate appraiser determines the fair market value of a home. It can assure you and your lender that the price you’ve agreed to pay for a home is fair. Appraisals are also often used to determine property taxes.
What is an earnest money deposit vs. a due diligence fee?
Earnest money, or good faith deposit, is a sum of money you put down to demonstrate your seriousness about buying a home. This amount is negotiable, refundable (within a period of time), and not always required. Earnest money protects the seller if the buyer backs out and is held in an escrow account until the deal is complete. Due diligence fees on the other hand, is paid directly to the seller and is credited to the purchase price. The amount paid non-refundable, but it is negotiable.
What paperwork do I sign at closing?
When buying a home, there are a lot of documents to sign during the closing process. The loan application, title documents, mortgage, deed, affidavit of title, transfer tax declaration, escrow disclosure, certificate of occupancy, and bill of sale. We’ll walk you through every piece of paperwork in the process.
How do I know what type of mortgage to apply for?

Different mortgage types offer different interest rates and down payments. Your income, credit score, and assets can impact the type of mortgage you get approved for.
