BUYING A HOME FAQ
What are closing costs?
Closing costs are the costs associated with obtaining a loan. Some examples of closing costs are the Loan Origination Fee, Title Insurance, Tax and Insurance Impounds. Your lender can help you figure out exactly what your closing costs will be. Sellers may also be willing to pay some closing costs with a good offer.
Who pays the commission?
Typically the seller will pay both the listing agent and the buyer’s agent’s commission.
Why do I need buyer's representation?
As a buyer’s representative we are able to give you realistic positives and negatives about each house you see. We can help you navigate the, sometimes, crazy real estate market. With our team we will ensure you are able to see the home you want to see as soon as possible. We will also help you draft the offer that reflects your needs.
Should I talk to a bank before looking at homes?
YES! There are tons of reasons why you should talk with a bank and get pre-approved before looking at homes. First and foremost, talking with a bank before looking at homes can help you understand exactly how much you can afford. Another important reason to talk with a bank before looking at homes is so you understand exactly what costs are associated with buying a home. Having a realistic idea of the money involved in purchasing a home is your first step to the home buying process.
What are other costs involved in purchasing a home?
During the escrow period a buyer will want to have inspections held to insure their confidence in their purchase. These inspections will need to be paid for before the inspection is held. The buyer will also be responsible for paying for the appraisal. Both the appraisal and the inspections are costs that a buyer will incur prior to the close of escrow.
What inspections should I have?
Every buyer should hire a licensed Home Inspector to perform a visual inspection of their potential purchase. The home inspector will inspect every aspect of the house and make recommendations based on his/her findings. A pest inspection is also recommended. The pest inspector will check to see if there are current pest issues or potential for pest issues. We recommend a radon test as well, it can be remedied so an inspection before you close should be done. There are other, more specific inspections that a buyer may want to have. Some examples are mold inspections, HVAC inspections, Chimney inspections, etc. We are happy to assist with obtaining any and all of these inspections.
Jessica and the Re/Max team were tremendous to work with. They made the process of selling our home simple and fluid. I would highly recommend this team to anyone looking for a knowledgeable team that knows the market.
I usually don’t do reviews, but Kelly has done such an outstanding job for me for several years now. I bought my first property with Kelly in 2005. She was patient and professional. She took the time to show me several properties at various price points in several areas. Once I found “the one”, we wrote up an offer immediately. I still own that home and have since bought 4 additional properties with Kelly. I sold one of those with Kelly. We got the price I wanted. I will use Kelly any time I wish to do business in Flagstaff!
When we were relocating to Flagstaff , it was suggested that we contact Kelly Kasprzyk and we were so fortunate to have her as our real estate agent. Kelly is not only energetic and a joy to work with, she worked tirelessly and patiently to help us find the perfect Flagstaff home for our specific needs in this new locale. She not only knows this market and details of all neighborhoods in Flag, she was also extremely helpful during all parts of the process with offering through closure and then our move in. We couldn’t be happier with the results.
Kelly brought great energy and focus to my home purchase. She not only helped with the transaction, but recommended trades within Flagstaff to fix the flaws. Kelly worked well with the other broker and also my lender. I would highly recommend her!
We had a wonderful experience buying our home with Tad Moore. He is patient and full of knowledge. He guides us through the process and helped us make some very tough negotiations. We felt lucky to have him our corner and fighting for us. Best experience by far in purchasing a home and this will be our third. I highly recommend Tad to anyone buying a home, he is a fantastic agent!!! He will go the extra mile and then some!
Tad is a dream to work with. He bears the perfect balance of personality and professionalism. Additionally, he brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the table and never makes you feel like a burden when you have a lot of questions. His instincts are spot on, and he puts a lot of time and effort into getting to know his clients likes and dislikes so he can guide them to their dream home. I highly recommend him!
Tad Moore is an AWESOME real estate agent! He goes way above and beyond what is typically expected! He is with you every step of the way and is very responsive to questions/problems that come up. I would highly recommend Tad as your real estate agent!
We can’t even begin to explain how wonderful the RE/MAX Elite Team has been! The moment we met Sara and Jessica, and later Eric, we were beyond impressed. The Elite Team’s communication and hard work ethic is unmatched. and I strongly believe their ” Team Concept” is one of the reasons why this particular realty group is and will continue to be so successful. We honestly can’t say enough good things about Sara, Jessica and Eric because truthfully, they went way above our expectations, and we are so incredibly grateful!
Commercial properties, homes, you name it Tad will make it happen. Tad helped find and negotiate the lease of my business location with ease, and now he is on to finding our first home. If you want someone who you can trust implicitly and point you in the right direction for your property needs, hands down Tad is your guy.
Tad helped us buy our first commercial property. He was very responsive and made sure we were well taken care of. He’s also helped us lease the property. I would recommend Tad for any commercial needs!
We originally met Kelly as the listing agent on a home, we ended up purchasing. She was so professional and easy to deal with that we chose to list our existing home with her even though we knew several other realtors in Flagstaff thru my board position at Aspen Valley. One of the things that I am most impressed with is that she immediately gets back to you with any question you may have. She follows up on all the showings and quickly shares feedback. Very happy we picked Kelly to work with.
In the new age business climate of hyperbole by text, tweets and aps, Kelly Kasprzyk is driven by the traditional values of honesty, hard work and sincere follow through. Her character and authentic sensibility have established a real sense of comfort and trust. It is easy to recommend Kelly, and her values based business model.
Eric Davis recently helped us buy a second home in Flagstaff. He did an outstanding job of listening to our needs and directing us to a great property. He was attentive, extremely efficient and reliable. Timely communication was especially important to us since we were out of town buyers. We relied heavily upon his advice and opinions. Our purchasing experience was overall, a great experience and we highly recommend Eric Davis and the Elite TEAM at RE/MAX Peak Properties.
Eric Davis was recommended by a friend who had had a good experience with him. He was very patient with us over a long period of time always easy to reach and prompt in returning our calls. We never felt like he was just trying to “make a sale” but was looking for the right home for us, and indeed, he found that home. Would recommend him highly.
Eric Davis is the very best!! He helped us find the perfect home! He responded to all our texts/phone calls right away and helped us to close in record time. He continued to help us several months later regarding a situation involving our home warranty. It has been clear to us that he really cares about our happiness and satisfaction in our new home. I almost never complete reviews but I’m so grateful to have worked with such an awesome real estate agent. Eric Davis really goes above and beyond!
Jessica and the entire Elite Team are fantastic. They are professional, personable, knowledgeable and easy to work with. We have now purchased two homes with Jessica, she understood our wants/needs and found us the perfect home…twice! I would recommend Jessica, Eric and Sara to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!
I love working with Jessica! She was there for me when I first bought my home and when I sold it to relocate. She was extremely helpful during both processes and I will be extremely sad that I won’t be able to work with her again. Both Jessica and Eric were great and available to help me when I needed it and I felt supported, especially during the selling process. They took something that was very scary for me and made it such an easy and painless process. I continue to recommend them to my friends in the area and…
We bought our first home with Jessica. Not only did she make it a pleasurable experience, but her expertise and honesty guaranteed we would find what we were looking for!
Sara is an amazing Realtor who goes above and beyond. She even found me people to help with the move and with house cleaning. She is a total professional, and she knows the Flagstaff area inside and out. I felt as if she always had my back. Plus, she is funny, fun and interesting.
As if moving from Columbus, OH to Flagstaff isn’t a big enough decision, we had less than a week to find a house that fit all our needs and wants! Thanks to Sara, and The Elite Team, this process was simply flawless! Every step of the way she was extremely helpful. In early October, we viewed 9 houses in one day…we were all over the place, and Sara never batted an eye. She is so down to earth and easy to get along with. Because we weren’t super familiar with the different areas, her guidance and honesty was greatly appreciated!…
Working with Jessica and Eric were extremely helpful in helping me get the perfect house. I always felt they were working for me and not just out to make a sale. Jessica returned my calls promptly and arranged viewings quickly, which is important in the Flagstaff market. I would recommend them to anyone needing help finding a home.
