You can easily avoid these five potentially vaer costly home buying mistakes with just a little bit of planning and research. For most people buying a house is the largest single investment they will ever make. Many home buyers simply call the seller’s agent because they got the number from the sign in front of the house. The listing agent has a contract that defines their obligations to the seller, not the buyer.
Most property values in my area (Southeastern Michigan) declined again this year. Local communities are struggling because they are losing tax revenue because of the decline in property values. I am currently serving my second term as a Tax Review Board Member for Canton Township. Each year in March I hear appeals from residents. Many of the appeals are denied simply because the resident didn’t provide a sufficient amount of evidence.
