7 Buying Mistakes That Could Lose You $10,000
This important report discusses the 7 most common and costly homebuyer traps, how to identify them, and what you can do to avoid them:
Buying the Wrong Home
Not Getting Mortgage Pre-approval
Unknown Closing Costs and Rushing the Escrow Close
Take your time during this critical part of the process, and insist on seeing all paperwork the day before you sign. Make sure this documentation perfectly reflects your understanding of the transaction, and that nothing has been added or subtracted. Is the interest rate right? Is everything covered? If you rush this process on the day of closing, you may run into a last minute snag that you can’t fix without compromising the terms of the deal, the financing, or even the sale itself.
7. Not Using A Free VA Buyer's Agent!
A buyer's agent is a free service to in most states to help ensure buyers are getting equal representation when buying a home.

Agency: A home buyer can be represented by a "Buyers Agent". These are licensed real estate agents ("Realtor") that put the needs of the home buyer 1st by helping them find a property, negotiate the best deal in their behalf, suggest proper inspections and help with the closing process. Some buyer agents are inexperienced or charge an "upfront fees" before they'll work with anyone. The referred agents with LocalMilitaryHomes.com are qualified professionals with years of home buyer experience and are never aloud to ask for any money from the buyer!

Buyers Agent - Represents the best interests of the buyer.
Listing Agent - Represents the best interests of the seller.
Dual Agent - Represents both the buyer and the seller at the same time.
Why Agents Are Free For Buyers: When a seller puts their home on the market for sale with a "listing agent" they have agreed to pay a commission to have the home marketed and sold.
