Lori Cain is an outstanding real estate agent. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t have bought my first house if it weren’t for her. It was my dream house, too. She knows her stuff and is not afraid to lay out the pros and cons for you. Her opinion is trustworthy, and in retrospect, there wasn’t a moment of that ‘buyer’s remorse’ because I was an informed buyer. I have and will recommend Lori Cain in a heartbeat to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

Don’t let this daunting list overwhelm you. Often the Seller is willing to contribute to your closing costs. The Seller is prohibited from contributing to your required down-payment, although that can be “gifted.”

I encourage you to compare Lenders and their fees. I have some excellent lenders in my resource section, feel free to check them out & if you have any questions, ask away!
