What you Need to Know about Mortgages

When looking at new homes in Richmond to buy, it is important to educate yourself on the basics of mortgages. Familiarize yourself with the terms and practices of mortgages, so you can be prepared for what is to come. Once you understand these basic things, home buying doesn’t seem so stressful. To help you in this process, here are some things you need to know about mortgages: 1. You should get fully pre-approved. The initial mortgage pre-qualification gives you an estimate of how much you can afford based on the information you give to get pre-approved. Getting pre-approved can give you a more specific amount you can afford and the monthly payments.

Energy Efficiency in Your Richmond New Home

Summer is officially heating up, and while we love getting out and enjoying the beautiful weather and all the things to do in Richmond, the sunshine and warmer temperatures can have some pretty unfavorable consequences on your home’s monthly energy bill. According to the National Association of Home Builders, newer homes average $241 a year to maintain while homes built in the 1980’s average $633 annually – that’s more than 2.5 times a newer home. Add that to the increase you’re likely to see during the summer months and you can see why it is important to have energy-efficient features built in to your home.
