Rowena keeps it light and fun while she shares various questions that come in from potential buyers moving to the mountains, and folks thinking of selling their home.

All kinds of things can affect a real estate search all the way through to the purchase of the home or property, and sometimes even after. See if you can find yourself in any of these. Funny thing is, we never think these will happen to us, and yet.! Even though I am in the business, I once opened a store card when I got googly eyed on a 'save 40%' on what I was purchasing when I was about to close on a home. That mistake cost me probably $10k over the life of the mortgage. Here’s a few of the things we hear on a weekly basis. Let’s bust these 21 myths.  See the myths in more detail here
A few of my faves:

6. What do you mean, my prequalification letter is not a preapproval? Please send your pre approval to your Allstar Agent ahead of time - it's the first domino! Need help? Ask us about our preferred lenders.  Contact us here

 7. But the inspection report has 33 items on it.

11. I’m perfectly happy selling it by myself. It’s only been 6 weeks and all those 12 buyers were really interested.

12. I forgot to tell the tax office when I added 400sf in the bonus room and basement so now it’s showing up online as much smaller.

18.  No one told me I couldn’t build the addition over the septic tank. And the permit shows 2 and I have 4 beds.

Yes, this is a true story, told or discovered a number of times. There’s a whole show on that one

20. The buyers really appreciate it when I am there to tell them all the work we’ve done on the house and show them photos.
