Following the Home Buying Journey:

This course includes 11 sessions of video presentations, teaching you each concept that you will encounter when shopping for a home loan, comparing new construction features and benefits versus the pros and cons of buying an existing home. You will learn what to review in a property appraisal and be presented with an overview of what the home inspection is (and why it's important). Lastly, with all of the "due diligence" duties complete, and the bank's final approval of your loan commitment, you'll be ready for the closing table!
In conclusion, by understanding these ten concepts, participating in this learning series will clear up much of the ambiguity surrounding the home buying process common among beginners and will help to improve the quality of your future home shopping experience.

"Excellence in Real Estate"
I began studying real estate in 1994 at Miami Dade College, worked from 2002 to 2010 as a real estate appraiser, and have been licensed in real estate sales since 2006. As a broker/owner, my boutique firm serves investors, buyers and sellers in Jacksonville, Florida with the goal of expanding into 14 FL markets in the next five years. I'm always interested in welcoming new associates and our door is always open to new clients - we look forward to seeing you.
Yes.. it's good enough that I am looking for. Thanks
The information is almost enough, but needs more examples. For instance, in the down payment section it mentions 25% is the top threshold for housing costs, but it doesn't detail what the housing costs are. Is that down payment and closing, just closing, etc.
