Real Estate Offices in Marianna Florida
Real estate offices in Marianna
typically have access to the same tools in terms of search and listings available. Its called the Multiple Listing Service or MLS. Our MLS page is located here. Our office is different from other offices however in that although we do have some of the same tools as the other agencies our focus is not tools but people. We develop relationships with property appraisers, mortgage loan offices, insurance agents and many more of the important people to know when you are ready to buy a home in or around Jackson, Holmes and Washington county.
What should I know about buying a home through a Marianna Florida realtor?
- Always use a trusted realtor – Remember that realtors actually take their commission from the seller. So you as a buyer should be able to feel confident in the broker you use. Sometimes commissions must be split between listing broker and agents with the selling agent if they are not the same. This is actually good for you as a buyer because you will be able to get an objective look at price. We offer listing and selling services as we are a full service agency.
- Buy whats affordable – Often times people buy beyond their means. usually this happens with adjustable mortgages and when interest rates rise people have other debt commitments at that point and can not afford the price hike. We are saddened when we see this because so many times we help people find their dream homes here in Marianna and never want to see them lose it so we have suggested in the past buy a smaller home if you need to and add on later as you can afford or refinance as soon as possible into a fixed interest loan so that you don’t get those surprise price hikes!
- Repairs and Upgrades – Speaking of surprises, dont forget that any upgrades you may plan to do after moving in may cost more than you are prepared for initially. When you think about doing bathroom and kitchen upgrades the cabinets and appliances are a pretty big expense but don’t forget to factor in the cost of possible fees and the certainty of labor costs of hiring a professional to do the work for you. There are some great DIY projects but sometimes you just need the pro contractor for the job!
We get excited when we get to work with informed buyers because they usually have better questions up front and have fewer complaints after the purchase. We sincerely want our customers to be satisfied completely so we like to help you think ahead . If you cant think of any questions (UNLIKELY) then ask us what questions other people usually ask and we are happy to tell you.
