Buying a home is a lot of effort, but the rewards outweigh the effort. Each step for the first time homebuyer is a new and unfamiliar experience. Dealing with real estate agents, title companies, mortgage brokers, home inspectors, surveyors, and, possibly, real estate lawyers is daunting. Many may use unfamiliar jargon which can be stressful to the new homebuyer. You will be requested to provide voluminous documentation to your mortgage lender and be signing official-looking legal documents provided by the title company. It is easy to become overwhelmed, but remember, even the most experienced buyers require guidance. Florida National Title has years of experience guiding Florida homebuyers through the real estate purchase experience and has helped them solve the problems that come up in the process. We will decipher the “legalese” and explain what we need and why we need it each step of the way. The blogs to follow will address specific issues to guide buyers to better understand the process and to help them avoid many of the pitfalls. Call us at (561)408-0729 or visit us at.
