Real Estate Lawyers

Choosing a lawyer is an important and big decision. This person is on your side to complete the whole transaction from registering the new deed, title search, and help you if any trouble arises on closing day. The importance of having someone that knows what they are doing–specifically in real estate should be at the top of your list when searching for a home. These lawyers can also help us with any property details (zoning, lot line disputes, and a big one for this area – does the property title actually have deeded beach rights as described in the MLS listing?) You want to know that you are getting exactly what you are paying for! Considering this is likely the most expensive purchase you’ll ever make, is this the time to take a chance?

We understand purchasing a home is both an exciting and stressful time. For most people it is the largest investment that they will make in their lives. It is not something people do every day. Our team works to make the experience as stress free and straight forward as possible for our clients. Our unique approach to the home purchasing process means that clients will visit our office for two appointments instead of just a traditional “signing appointment.” We offer a preliminary appointment where clients learn about our services, the costs of buying a home and the client’s responsibilities and obligations. Clients are encouraged to discuss any questions or concerns at this appointment, this is particularly important for first time home buyers. Second appointment closer to the closing date takes place to sign the documents and to address any additional questions or concerns. While our method requires a little extra work on our part, over the years we have found that our clients understand the closing process better and enjoy a much smoother experience as they become home owners for the first time or move on to a new stage in their lives.

Home Inspectors

When you put an offer in on a home, you don’t want to be unaware of any issues with the home. That is why we always suggest that you hire a home inspector to comb through the home and find any deficiencies. Often times, a home inspector finds small repairs that can be done by you when after you take possession of the home. They make notes about it in their report and take photos for your record. A home inspector is key before signing off on the home purchase.
Here are our most trusted home inspectors:

Bluewater Property Consultants Website

Buying a house is a fun, thrilling and sometimes stressful time for most home buyers. Not knowing all the facts about a potential property purchase can have lasting effects for years to come and end up costing you, the buyer, thousands of dollars in unexpected repairs.
Would you purchase a vehicle without first having it inspected by a certified mechanic? Of course not. Then why gamble with the largest investment that most people will probably ever make? That’s exactly what you are doing by not getting a pre purchase home inspection done performed by a properly certified home inspector.
Bluewater Home Inspection can alleviate some of the stresses involved with purchasing a new house. We offer a comprehensive inspection of all facets of the property. We also encourage all potential homebuyers to accompany us on the inspection so that we may answer any questions you have relating to your future property. The inspector will take the time to explain any concerns about the property, and will educate you on what maintenance is required to keep your new home in pristine condition. By attending the inspection you will gain the maximum benefit of the entire inspection process.
After the home inspection is complete, the inspector will provide you a verbal explanation of any deficiencies found on the property. A clear and concise written copy of the report is prepared and delivered within one business day. Our written reports are not a checklist type report, which are cluttered and difficult to read. A report from Bluewater Home Inspection is a comprehensive, easy to read report with pictures and visual diagrams to explain conditions found in the house and probable causes of any deficiencies.
