Budgeting for buying a home can be difficult enough when you're just weighing mortgage options and a purchase price. But there are many other factors that go into the cost of home ownership. Some of them are one-time expenses that you'll pay during the home buying process, while others will be recurring costs for as long as you own the home.Closing costsThere are several smaller fees that add up to a rather large sum when you're going through the closing process-loan fees, attorney fees, underwriting fees, and more. They typically add up to 2-5% of the purchase price. For a $300,000 home-roughly the national median-that's in the neighborhood of $10,000, so be sure to budget for it.AppraisalYour lender will require an appraisal, and the appraisal fee (a few hundred dollars) comes out of ...

Ready to put your home on the market? Now that you’re ready to sell your Charlottesville property, the first thing you need to do is decide how much you are listing it for.  Perhaps you still remember how much you bought it for, but it has been many years since then, and the market has changed. The value of your home has also changed. It could have gone up or down depending on the real estate market trend in your area. How will you know the value of your property?Setting a price for your Charlottesville country property for sale can be difficult without knowing first what its current market value is, and there will be repercussions if you do not price your home correctly. If you overprice, your property will likely stay on the market longer than you want it to.
