If you’ve narrowed down your choice of a home to one, you may be eager to make an offer and get negotiations started.
If you’re buying in a tight market where sellers have the upper hand you may even feel pressured to put in an offer the moment you see a house.
But, before you write that check for your earnest money deposit, you should take a little time to investigate the house and the neighborhood so you have a better idea of what you’re buying.
Your REALTOR® can be a valuable resource in gathering information for you and getting the answers to your questions from the seller’s agent.
In the meantime, you can be proactive and do some of your own research.

The polar vortex is proving to be no sweat for home buyers, according to the latest National Housing Trend Report from realtor.com®.
Despite severe winter weather conditions across the nation,
the 2014 home buying season got off to a good start with a year-over-year increase in inventory and sustained growth in home prices.
The median list price for January rose 8.3 percent compared to the same time last year, according to the realtor.com® data. The number of properties for sale was up 3.1 percent. And the median age of inventory was essentially unchanged,
indicating a transition to a “less frenzied market” than in January 2013.

Successful problem solving often depends on the tools you’re given: The more information you have, the better equipped you are to identify and solve an issue. That’s the idea behind the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s new mortgage data tool and the new data-reporting requirements it plans to propose this year.

Whether you’re refinancing your home loan or planning to buy a home in 2014, you’ll be among the first consumers to apply for a mortgage under new rules established by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Known as “Qualified Mortgages” or QM regulations, these new rules are meant to protect consumers from unsustainable loans and to prohibit lenders from approving loans for unqualified borrowers. The rules, part of the aftermath of the housing and financial crisis, change the availability of some loan programs and limit the fees that lenders can charge to consumers.

and unsung heroes that give so much to their fellow Americans.
If you've ever been to the hospital for any reason and appreciated the personal care given from a nurse, felt grateful for the extra time a teacher or Scout Leader spent with your child, enjoyed fresh produce or quite frankly enjoy eating at all, wept when you saw our police, fire and rescue personal risking their lives on 9/11, watched anxiously as your parent, child or sibling waved goodbye on their way to a foreign land to defend the freedom of others, if you get a lump in your throat and a tear in your eye reading this then you understand why I am putting my money where my mouth is and giving back to all of folks here who have given their time , their energy and their very selves for me. I can't change the world but I can change myself and I give back 10% of every commission I, or any agent I work with in North America, earn on every real estate transaction we am a part of. Every time one of our fellow American public servants, volunteers or unsung heroes uses one of our hand picked agents when they buy or sell a home anywhere in North America the agent and I give back 10% of our commission. Furthermore, we partner with certain lenders to make a matching contribution to the buyer or sellers chosen charity or organization such as the Boy or Girl Scouts of America, Fraternal Order of Police or National Education Association. I look forward to serving you and giving back.
to participate in this cause and save money the next time you buy or sell a home.

Fixed-rate mortgages saw a slight decline this week. The downward move comes after rates saw a healthy increase over the past three weeks in response to positive economic reports, particularly in the growth of private-sector employment.
The drop in rates is seen as a response to a reduction in reports on economic indicators, as major markets brace
for news from the Federal Open Market Committee meeting next week.
