New Build or Existing Home: Which One Is Right for You?
Homebuyers today are facing a huge dilemma. There simply aren’t enough homes for sale.

There are various things to look for on your home tour with a Realtor. You should look at all the usual things like the kitchen, baths, layout, rooms and the backyard... but there are also things that you should look at on your tour that can save you a lot of time and money if you spot these things early. By learning a few things and taking a little extra time on your home tour and listening to your Realtor... you will not end up putting in offers on homes that wont work for you because they need to many repairs or have unpermitted work that you don't want to deal with. If you see these things early, they can also help you save money on the amount of your offer. Most of time sellers know what's wrong with their homes but see it differently than the buyer.

If you are unsure if you should buy or rent at this time here are some helpful things that can help you decide.."Should I rent or buy?"
The mortgage rates today are at historic lows, and right now is a great time to finance a property or refinance one. Now you can buy or refinance a property to get payments lower than rent.
Rent rates have increased and mortgage rates have decreased in most of the country. Here in Orlando, FL we have followed suit.
While the median rent for a 3 bedroom apartment or condo in Orlando is around 1530.00 according to RentOmeter.com, the payment for a single family home in Orlando has dropped to around 1387.00 with a standard 20% down 3.5% mortgage rate according to Rate.com (at the time of this writing).
While with a home purchase you may need to put down more upfront as far as in a down payment and closing costs…these are all going into something you will own instead of renting and making someone else rich.
