Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have questions about real estate?  We’ve got all of the inside know-how you need, direct from our experienced Tarboro real estate agents. Real estate terms and transactions can be confusing.  Let us be your guide!

While it is not required to have a real estate agent, it can be very beneficial to have one working with you.  Real estate transactions are typically one of the largest financial investments of your life, and it can be invaluable to have a realtor guide you through the process.  A real estate agent is much more than just a sales person! A realtor will provide you with guidance and support during the process of buying or selling a home, and can help you to manage the ins and outs of all aspects of the transaction.

We generally recommend you hire a real estate agent as soon as you’re thinking of buying or selling your home. Generally speaking, that’s anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.

In general, spring is considered the best tine to sell a home.  But since every seller’s situation is different, it is best to discuss the timing of your home sale with your realtor.

Not properly preparing a home for sale can put the seller at a big disadvantage!  See our Sellers page for a detailed listing of suggestions to present your home in the best possible light.

Listing agents usually deal with the sellers, and are the ones who “list” a property for sale.

Selling agents (also referred to as buyers agents) mostly deal with the buyers.

In most cases, the seller pays the realtor fees.

How is the neighborhood/area?  How are the schools?  What are the average utility bills?  What’s the age of the home? What’s the age of other high-ticket items (roof, air conditioning, water heater, etc.)?  For other tips on buying a house, check out our Buyers page.

We recommend that first time home buyers talk to multiple different lenders before applying for a loan.  Different lenders may have different rates or programs, which can vastly impact your monthly mortgage amount. Before contacting lenders, you will want to have a few things in hand, including your monthly income, the sum of your total monthly debt payments, your credit score and how much cash you can put down.

The term “closing” refers to when you sign all of the loan and ownership paperwork in order to take over the home or property.  At this time, you may be responsible for some of the closing costs (this may include title insurance, fees for loan origination, loan application fees, appraisals, housing surveys and other costs).  These costs can quickly add up, so it is important to keep these costs in mind when closing.  Your realtor and lender will be able to guide you through this to ensure there are no surprises at closing.
