Home buying FAQs

It certainly is! It’s a buyer’s market out there giving you lots of options to choose from, competitive pricing, and highly motivated sellers. If your funding is squared away, now’s a great time to land a new home.
As an experienced industry insider, I can give you the scoop on any property you’re interested in, including the listing history and more. I have property details at my fingertips that are sometimes hard to get.
No one wants to overpay and I can ensure that doesn’t happen. I’ve been in this business long enough to know instinctively the value of a home and what a fair asking price should be.
I love pairing buyers with ideal neighborhoods to fit their lifestyle and preferences. I’m highly knowledgeable about the areas in and around Indianapolis, and can give you the skinny on any neighborhood.
Down payments come in all shapes and sizes depending on factors like your financial situation, credit history, and loan type. They typically range from 3-15% of the sale price. My expert lenders can work with you to identify the right amount for you.
Interest rates continue to be buyer-friendly. They vary based on the location of your desired home, your credit score, the loan amount, type, and length, and your down payment. Your lender will walk you through the interest rate options available to you.
There are pros and cons to both. And I’m more than happy to sit down with you and walk through the nitty gritty details. Also, having worked with contractors for years, I can easily price out remodels or upgrades for you and recommend the best folks for the job.
Mary was everything you could possibly ask for in a Realtor and more. She was prompt, diligent, and relentless when it came to helping us find a buyer for our house and closing the deal for our new home.
We ended up buying the house with all of Mary’s amazing help guiding us through the process from across the country. We couldn’t be happier. We love our house and our neighborhood!
I recently purchased a house through Mary and she truly went above and beyond. She was extremely proactive, knowledgeable, and understands the market. Her attention to detail was unparalleled.
