3.  Not realizing that the wrong mortgage can cost thousands of dollars in unnecessary interest and taxes.
4.  Not discovering hidden defects before buying a home.
5.  Not knowing how debt can affect their ability to buy or refinance a home.

 

Sellers Mistakes

7.  Failing to “showcase” their home by highlighting the best features.
8.  Signing a listing contract with no way out.
