Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 hi Sheila and Larry... a great point. I've run into many a buyer who somehow thinks that seller paid closing costs are a "free gift" owned them by a home seller. Not so much, as we well know... especially in a market with tight inventory.

Good morning Nina Hollander ,

Its hard to believe this week marks officially summer! This is a great list and I especially like #2. In our fast paced market..prices are rising and with interest rates low its the best time to snag a house this year! Next year prices will still be moving higher but not sure if interest rates will be this low.

Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR hi Dorie... I'm with you... hard to believe that 2019 is almost half over and that summer is arriving once again. I'm also with you as to home prices continuing to increase and interest rates at some point, as well.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson hi Sally and David... the cost of not owning a home can really multiply down the road and that's very obvious when you consider that homeowner's are worth when they retire versus renters.
