When you sign any agreement or contract, whether it is a listing or buying agreement or a mortgage contract, you really should take the time to read it carefully and thoroughly so that you know and fully understand what it says. Highlight areas which are unclear to you and ask your agent or,preferably, your lawyer to help explain or clarify the meanings and potential implications of the portions of the contract you are uncertain about. Too many sellers and buyers discover those meanings after they have signed an agreement, when it is too late to amend or alter them. You cannot be too careful when it comes to putting your name on a legal agreement. In this hurried society we tend to feel rushed through and sign things before we really know what they say. Take the time you need. Ask questions. Make sure you are comfortable with what you are agreeing to.

Your realtor can give you some guidance on who to contact about any other questions you may have. Give us a call or drop us an email.

We're here to work for you. Have a great day!
