The market in the Clear Lake and League city area remains strong. It is becoming a more balanced market where homes aren't flying off the market as soon as they are listed giving buyers a bit more breathing room to look. However if a home is move in more...Posted 1 year ago

Do a buyer have to pay for realtor commission?


I would say that "typically" the seller is the one who pays commissions and title policy. Of course there can be exceptions to this depending on the property and seller's situation. As a first-time buyer having a Realtor assist you as you navigate more...Posted 1 year ago
