is proud to announce that

Jason Lanier

is now a part of our team! Jason’s knowledge of real estate stems not only from his extensive background in banking and finance, but also from his personal experience investing in Statesboro real estate. After fifteen successful years in banking and commercial lending, Jason realized his true passion for real estate and decided to put aside his banking career and use his skills and knowledge to help others achieve their real estate goals. From residential properties to agricultural and commercial real estate, Jason understands what both buyers and sellers are looking for. “Real estate excites me. I’ve spent years studying the market and I am really looking forward to helping my clients make the best and most informed real estate decisions.” A graduate of the University of Georgia as well as Georgia Banking School, Jason understands real estate lending and financing options like few others can. Jason’s banking career began as a loan officer at AgSouth Farm Credit, and he was most recently Regional Vice President with The Heritage Bank. Jason loves Statesboro and Bulloch County and is actively involved in the community. “I’ve lived in Statesboro and Bulloch County most of my life and everyday I gain a greater understanding of what this area has to offer.” He serves as treasurer and board member of the Boys and Girls Club of Bulloch County and is a former director of the Statesboro Bulloch County Chamber of Commerce. Jason was recognized in 2012 as one of the Statesboro Herald’s 20 under 40 top professionals, and is also a graduate of Leadership Bulloch. Jason loves meeting new people, good music, Georgia and Georgia Southern

football, and coaching his sons’ little league soccer teams. He and his wife, Lea, attend First Baptist Church and have two sons Hudson (8) and Henry (5).

How to Find the

RIGHT REAL ESTATE AGENT

Buying a home is often a difficult thing to do.The stress of making such a big financial commitment is a struggle for many home buyers, whether they have purchased a home in the past or are doing so for the first time. One way to make the process a lot less anxiety-ridden is to work with a real estate agent you can trust.Those who have previously purchased a home might already have a strong relationship with a real estate agent. But for those moving out of their current location or buying for the first time, finding the right real estate agent requires some effort.Those in the market for an agent to help navigate the home buying process should consider the following tips.

Find a buyer’s agent. Real estate agents are often affiliated with sellers instead of buyer’s.This means their primary goal is to help the seller and not the buyer.When shopping around for a real estate agent, ask companies about their buyer’s agents. Buyers should always have someone with their interests in mind, and not the interests of the sellers.

Find an agent first, then a property. Many times homes remain listed online or in “home for sale” brochures even if they are under contract or sold. These homes are often luxurious and appealing to a wide array of prospective buyers, and some agencies use them to attract customers.While this isn’t a typical bait and switch, it is a way real estate agencies get customers in the door. It is important to find a real estate agent before looking through home listings. This allows the buyer to choose their agent based on merit and not due to the potentially glitzy houses he or she may have listed previously.

Find someone with a track record. Real estate can be an exciting and

financially rewarding industry in which to work.As a result, lots of people want to be real estate agents, even though few succeed and last a long time. When interviewing real estate agents, inquire about their history in the business. A more experienced agent will make things far less stressful and easier, and a long career indicates they are good at what they do. A real estate agent with a long history in the business will likely be a full-time agent as well. Prospective buyers should look for a full-time agent, which is not as common as some buyers might think.Many agents work part-time, and buyers could receive less attention as a result.

Don’t place too much emphasis on agency size. Real estate agencies come in all shapes and sizes.When it comes to ability, the size of the agency should not factor in. A smaller independent agency can be just as qualified and reliable as one of the major franchise agencies. Buyers who find someone they trust should go with that person, regardless of how big or small their agency is.

Get a referral. Friends and family members who have been through the buying process before might be great resources. Buyers looking in “Town X” who have friends or family already living there should consult those friends or family and ask for any agent referrals. Those relocating because of work should ask their company to refer an agent. Chances are companies have relocated employees in the past, and might have a strong relationship with an agency in town. 

The

MORTGAGE PROCESS Have you ever had so much to do that you needed a check-list to keep it all straight. The same approach is a smart way to venture into the home buying process. First you look at current income and expenses and figure out what you can afford and this will give you an idea of whether you can secure a mortgage or not. From here the exciting part is touring homes to see which best fit your needs and lifestyle.

Access Your Loan Officer

call some of the local banks and ask what their best mortgage rates are.

You probably already have a bank that you do business with, therefore you may already know the loan officer and this sometimes makes for an easier approach. Your record(s) of accounts (checking, savings, IRA) would already be in the system and this may save you some time. Would you rather shop around for a mortgage that’s okay too? Ask your local real estate agent for a referral. A good loan officer and a top producing agent rely on each other for business. You may also

Pre-Approval A mortgage lender will fully expose your financial situation. You will need banking records, tax returns, pay stubs and W2forms. These items along with checking your credit score will provide a general idea of the amount that you will be qualified to borrow. What is your credit score? Your credit score signifies your capability and willingness to repay debt. Credit scores range from 350 to 850. This number is determined by current debt,

payment history and credit type. As a potential borrower your lender will give guidance on how to improve your credit standing if need be. Once you are pre-approved for a loan pay close attention to make sure bills are paid on time and do not purchase big ticket items where credit can be pulled as this will lower your credit score. Preapproval offers usually last for 90 days before having to be renewed.

Understanding the Terms

Once you find your “home sweet home” and officially apply for a mortgage make sure you fully understand the paperwork that you are signing when you close the loan. The fees outlined should closely match what you actually pay during the closing process. 

HOUSE STYLES101 As the old adages go, “a man’s home is his castle” and “there’s no place like home.” What type of house a person chooses to call home can say a lot about his or her personality and priorities.

Colonial

Homes developed during the colonial period of the United States and remain one of the most popular housing styles to date. Colonials generally have a distinct square or rectangular shape and are often large and stately. Main rooms are on the first floor of the house, while bedrooms are on the second level. A center-hall colonial can have a staircase or hallway

splitting the home into two distinct sides.

Ranch

This style became popular in the 1960s, when many families were flocking to suburban areas. Long, spacious homes were first seen on the country’s ranches. As they cropped up in different areas, they were still referred to as ranch-style homes or ranches. Ranch homes are very popular with seniors because most are one-level homes.

Tudor

Tudor-style homes are reminiscent of the Tudor architectural style popular in England between 1485 and 1558. These homes are characterized by an asymmetrical floor plan, tall,

thin windows, a large chimney, decorative half-timbering, and steeply pitched roofs.

Craftsman

Craftsman homes came out of the Arts & Crafts movement that spurred architectural styles as well as furniture design. Craftsman homes are built from stone or stucco and are meant to blend in with the surrounding landscape. Oftentimes one-story, the Craftsman may have one dormer over the roof and feature thick pillars on a front porchway.

Contemporary A

contemporary or “modern” house has little ornamentation and may be asymmetrical in design. It uses glass extensively and other modern building materials. Contemporary homes are often designated by sleek, unadorned lines.

Cape Cod

Homes built from the 1930s through the 1950s. The style originated in colonial New England, but then spread to other areas of the country. The homes are usually compact and feature a

center hall layout with rooms branching on either side of the hallway. Capes may be one- or two-story dwellings with small rooms and dormers that protrude out of a sharply pitched roof.

Split-Level

A split-level home is a multi-leveled dwelling with a small staircase that leads up from the main level and another that leads down from the main level. A sidesplit may be visible when looking at the front of the home, where a backsplit may only show when looking at the side elevation of the home. A bi-level home only has two levels.

Mission

This style became popular in southern areas of the country between the years 1485 and 1558. It was inspired by Mexican mansions. Mission style homes are distinguished by exterior stucco walls and parapets, or a low wall that runs at the perimeter of the roof. Mission homes also may have an arcade, or a series of arches supported by large square columns to form a large, shaded entry porch. 

Guests may notice the flower arragements are silk. BUT THEY’LL NEVER NOTICE THE COUNTERTOP ISN’T STONE.

How to Survive Buying Your

FIRST HOME The lowest home prices in years and tax incentives are driving many people to purchase their first home. Few things are simultaneously as exciting and nerve wracking as becoming a homeowner. Preparation can make sure individuals are covering all of the bases.

First time home buyers easily can be overwhelmed by the process of buying a home. In addition to the legal hurdles associated with purchasing a home, the stress of committing such a substantial amount of money can lead to some sleepless nights. But first time home buyers in the market for a home can prepare themselves for the process ahead of time. Though the following tips might not guarantee a smooth and stress-free home buying experience, they can answer a few questions and facilitate the process.

• Establish your price range. As the housing crisis of the last

several years indicated, many homeowners got in well over their heads. Some lost their homes to foreclosure, while others found it extremely difficult to pay their mortgage each month. First time buyers can avoid such scenarios by honestly assessing what they can afford and searching for homes within their price range. A host ofWeb sites, including some lender sites, provide free mortgage calculators so buyers can see just what they can afford. Lenders often recommend spending less than 30 percent of income on housing costs.

• Research rates & taxes. Certain external factors beyond the price

of the home will factor into a homeowner’s monthly financial commitment. Taxes and homeowner’s insurance can vary greatly depending on a home’s location. Research property taxes in different communities, and shop around for homeowner’s insurance when looking for a home.

• Expect to pay costs.

Closing costs are often a big shock to first time home buyers. Closing costs include lender fees, title and settlement fees, taxes, and homeowners insurance or homeowners association fees. Bankrate.com provides an annul closing cost survey for buyers to get a better feel of just what they will be spending when the time comes to sign on the dotted line.A lender can also give an estimate of what fees may total.

• Consult some professionals. Real estate

professionals in the area might be able to paint a picture of what the real estate market is like at the moment. Prices might be on the rise, on the decline or remaining steady. If looking in a specific area, consult with a real estate agent about the area and what to expect. When shopping for a home for the first time, buyers should expect the nexpected. However, the surprise

element can be reduced if buyers do their homework before starting the process. 

Economic and Mortgage

GLOSSARY

Not sure of the Mortage and Home lingo? Here are some frequently heard words during the home buying process. With an understanding of the home loan language, you’ll feel more confident in your choices when speaking to your real estate agent or mortgage lender

Amortization: The paying

down of principal over time. In a typical mortgage loan, the principle is scheduled to be paid off, over the term of the loan.

Conforming Mortgage Loan: Any mortgage loan that’s at

or below the amount that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac can purchase and/or securitize in the secondary mortgage market. The current loan limit is up to and including $417,000 in the continental United States.

Construction Loan: A

temporary loan that is used to pay for the building of a house.

Conventional Mortgage Loan: Any mortgage loan

not guaranteed or insured by the government (typically through FHA or VA programs).

Existing Home Sales: Based on the number of closings during a particular month. Because of the one to two month period between a signed purchase contract and a closing, existing home sales are more influenced by mortgage rates a month or two earlier than the prevailing mortgage rate during the month of closing. New homes sold, on the other hand, are

counted when the purchase contract is signed. The reported figure is generally a seasonally adjusted, annual rate.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac: The nation’s two federally

charted and stockholders mortgage finance companies. Forbidden by their charters from originating loans (that is from providing mortgage loans on a retail basis), these two GovernmentSponsored Enterprises (GSEs) purchase and/or securitize mortgage loans made by others. Due to their directive to serve low-, moderate-, and middleincome families, the GSEs have loan limits on the purchase or securitization of mortgages (in 2001, the conforming loan limit is $275,000). The difference between these two entities often comes down to size (Fannies larger), business strategy and execution.

Home Equity: The difference

between the current value of the house and the amount of money owed on the mortgage.

Home Equity Line of Credit: A type of home loan that

allows you to borrow money as you need it.

Home Equity Loan: A loan that is secured by a home and limited

by the market value of the home among other factors.

Home Improvement Loan: Money lent to a property

owner for home repairs and remodeling.

Home Loan: Money provided

by a bank or lending institution to pay for a home.

Interest Rate: A measure of the

cost of borrowing.

Jumbo Mortgage Loan:

A mortgage loan for an amount exceeding the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loan limit. Currently a Jumbo loan is a loan for $417,001 or more in the continental United States. Because the two agencies can’t purchase the loan from the lender, jumbo loans carry higher interest rates, generally about a quarter of a percent higher.

Loan-to-value Ratio (LTV): In a mortgage loan, the

amount borrowed relative to the value of the property. An LTV of 80% means that the mortgage loan is for 80% of the value of the property, with the borrower making a 20% down payment.


BUYER’S GUIDE - Page 13

Mortgage: A loan that is secured by real estate.

Mortgage Broker:

A person or company that brings borrowers and lenders together.

Mortgage Calculator: An on-line

form that shows how much a borrower will pay each month for a home loan.

Mortgage Loan:

Money lent for the purpose of buying real estate.

Mortgage Quote:

An interest rate offered on a home loan.

Mortgage Rate: The amount of interest charged on money lent for the purchase of a home.

Mortgage Refinancing: Getting a new home loan and using the proceeds to pay off an existing home loan on the same property.

Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI): is

insurance that protects your lender against nonpayment should you default on your loan. It’s important to understand that the primary and only real purpose for mortgage insurance is to protect your lender-not you. As the buyer of this

coverage, you’re paying the premiums, so that your lender is protected. PMI is often required by lenders due to the higher level of default risk that’s associated with low down payment loans. Consequently, it’s sole and only benefit to you is a lower down payment mortgage.

Securitization: The pooling of mortgage loans into a mortgage backed security. The principle and interest payments from the individual mortgages are paid out to the holders of the MBS security. Underwriting: The determination of the risk a lender would assume if a particular mortgage loan application is approved. Ability and willingness to abide by the mortgage loan terms, as well as the value of the property involved, are critical to the underwriting analysis. 

Options Add

FINISHING TOUCHES To Your Home An entry takes on new dimension when a flush door is replaced with one that has a window with decorative glass or a transom above it. Shutters can add a subtle touch to facade. And windows and patio doors with rich hardware finishes, distinctive grilles and other options add depth and character to a home inside and out. As more homeowners look to add curb appeal and charm to their homes, window manufacturers have expanded their offerings to help homeowners achieve their desired outcome. You’ll love the look of your home even more when you include any number of finishing touches on your windows and doors. “Homeowners have so many choices for tailoring the windows and doors to their home thanks to the many, many options available from manufacturers today,” says Dave Koester, brand manager for Weather Shield Windows & Doors, a premium window and patio door manufacturer. “From exterior colors to interior wood species and hardware styles and finishes, the choices are practically unlimited.”

Inside Appeal

On the inside, you can choose from several types of wood for your windows -- each offering unique textures and grains. Maple, cherry, mahogany, character alder, knotty pine and oak are among the wood choices available on many window brands. Higher-end, specialty window brands can also accommodate requests for custom wood species. Interior trim in a variety of profiles and styles attractively frames windows, whether it be on a window over the kitchen sink or around the picture window in the living room. Advances in screens are one of the latest trends in windows and doors. The newest generation of screens may be completely hidden -retracting into the window or door frame -- or hardly visible with tightly woven screen mesh. Weather Shield Windows & Doors has a wood-wrapped screen frame that provides classic warmth to screens that

are always on display. A hinged version of the wood-wrapped screen nicely dresses up a pushout French casement window. Hardware on windows, patio doors and screens can be subtle nuances or intriguing adornments. Collapsible crank handles for casement windows minimize interference with the view and window treatments. You can stick with the standard hardware finish, usually bright brass, or look to other lush finishes such as oil-rubbed bronze, brushed nickel, chrome, brushed chrome or antique brass to dress up your personal spaces. Hand-cast bronze hardware is

an authentic enhancement in homes of Classical and Colonial architecture. Bathrooms, bedrooms and even a home’s more public areas can benefit from specialty glass that obscures the view and enhances privacy. Through new manufacturing technology, manufacturers also now offer the distinctive look of leaded or beveled glass without the expense of the real thing. Grilles or mullions provide allure to windows and patio doors at a reasonable cost. Whether inside the airspace of insulated glass or affixed to the inside and outside of the glass, grilles can be configured in a standard rectangular pattern or custom patterns that add to a home’s charm from the street or the easy chair.

Exterior Touches

Window and door trim on the home’s exterior serves a practical purpose while also embellishing a home’s architectural style through one of many profiles available. Weather Shield recently introduced a unique exterior wood casing line that includes hundreds of configurations in one-piece or two-piece systems that complement Colonial, Craftsman or whatever your home’s architectural style. That exterior trim, along with the windows and doors, can be prefinished in any color imaginable for a consistent color and finish -- whether your windows and doors have wood or aluminum clad exteriors. Anodized aluminum exteriors capture the look of true bronze, silver, copper or other metals in a finish that is durable, resistant to chipping and peeling, and evenly finished. Clearly, the vast array of options available for windows and doors today can help create curb appeal and a one-of-a-kind look for your home. Each adds character, warmth and personality that enhances your home. 

Why You Need A

HOME INSPECTION

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation.

Buying a home is probably the single most expensive largest investment you will ever make. Before you buy you will want to learn as much as you can about the piece of property that you are interested in. This may alleviate possible future problems or difficulties. A home inspection may identify the need for repairs or builder oversights, as well as the need for maintenance to keep it in good shape. After the inspection the insight will let you know more about the house, which in turn lets you make a better buying decision.

Garage or Carport The garage doors will be checked to make sure they open and close properly, framing, and proper ventilation (to prevent accidental carbon monoxide poisoning).

A standard home inspection report covers:

Roof The areas to be checked are for are loose or missing shingles, where water may be or have been entering the home, ridge vents or attic fans and gutters.

Exterior Walls

Interior Plumbing

Checking for damaged or missing siding, cracks and to see if soil is excessively close with the bottom of the house, which can lead to insect damage. Foundation Usually the foundation is not visible but can be checked for secondary evidence of cracks or settling.

Grading The inspector

will let you know whether the grading slopes away from the house as this could cause water damage.

Checking for all faucets and showers, checking for visible leaks in the pipes and testing the water pressure. They should also be able to locate the main water shutoff valve.

Electrical Testing of

electrical outlets, the kind of wiring the home has and ground fault circuit interrupters. They will also check the electrical panel (breaker box) for any safety issues. The water heater should be checked for proper installation and security and identify the age of the unit.

*These are some of the most common items checked for. There may be others depending on request and the home inspector.

Does the report highlight a place for safety hazards that may be present? Being a good inspector doesn’t mean that you have to be a member of such groups as ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) but it is often a plus. an objective, independent inspector whom has your best interest at heart. You may consider asking for a referral from someone you trust such as friends

What will it cost? Typically home

inspections cost anywhere from $250 to $350, depending on the region and size of the house. Don’t let

cost be a factor in deciding whether or not to spend the extra money for a home inspection. The sense of security and knowing a good bit more about the home that you are considering will bring a great peace of mind to your buying decision.

The bottom line...

A home inspection will cost you a little bit of time and money, but in the long run you will look back and be glad that you did. If you are a first-time homebuyer, an inspection can give you insight in home maintenance and a list of items to make your home as safe and sound as possible.

CLOSING

The Process I can remember back

twelve years ago when I purchased my home one of the most stressful steps to the home buying process was the closing of the home purchase. The anxious feeling in the pit of your stomach is not very pleasant at all. With a mound of documents to prepare and sign, moving dates to arrange, unexpected cost, and sometimes other difficulties. The day before your closing is scheduled, gather all paperwork you have received throughout the home buying process: good-faith estimate, contract, title search, insurance papers if necessary, home appraisal and inspection reports. Also on the day

Buyer’s Edge

Being prepared for this part of the home buying experience can be nerve racking. Knowing what to expect can save a lot of anxious uncertainty! before going into the closing the home buyer is entitled to a walk-through inspection. This is to properly ensure that the seller has vacated the property and left it in the conditions specified in the sales contract. Should any potential problems arise they can possibly be addressed before closing. Closing a home purchase takes place after the home seller has accepted the buyer’s offer. On closing day, all parties involved will sign prospective paperwork officially sealing the deal and ownership is respectively transferred to the new owners. Closing is typically held in an office setting with the attorney, real estate agent(s), mortgage lender and home seller

present. Legal documents are signed to transfer the title of the property from seller to buyer; deeds, mortgage papers and other documents are prepared, signed and recorded with the local property record office at the courthouse. Closing cost, legal fees, transfer taxes and other claims must be paid at that time. They either roll them into the principal balance of the new loan or agree to higher interest rates and the lender foots the bill or the fees are paid out-of-pocket. Once you’ve reviewed and signed and received your copy of all closing documents, the house keys are yours and you will have successfully bought your new home! 
