    3 Pieces of Money You Need to Know About


    Earnest Money

    Earnest money is a check written at time of offer that proves to a seller you’re serious about the purchase. Earnest money is held in escrow until closing and then applied towards the purchase. Earnest money is 1% of the total price of the home.

    Appraisal Money

    If a mortgage is involved, your lender must order an appraisal to ensure the house is worth the amount it’s lending. This typically costs between $450-$500 and is paid directly to your lender within the first five days of the contract period.

    Inspection Money

    This will provide you with a professional inspector that perform home inspections based on guidelines established by the TEXAS REAL ESTATE COMMISSION, and adherence to TREC standards. This includes inspecting the foundation, structure, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC. The professional inspector will also inspect the grading and drainage systems surrounding the home structure. Inspections typically occur in the first 7-10 days of the option period  and can range from $250-$1,000 depending on the home’s features (pool, septic, chimney, etc).

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ From the first time Jesse contacted me he always kept his word and went out of his way to get my home purchases completed. Jesse always answered my calls and all my questions, when I was worried he calmed me me and reassured me. I would recommend Jesse and his wife (Rosa) for all your home purchases and needs, he by far is a great agent and an even greater man. I have made him a part of my family for life!
