Steps To Buying A Home - Part 2

Step 1: Start Your ResearchStep 2: Get Prequalified or PreapprovedStep 3: Hire A Real Estate AgentStep 4: Tour HomesTaking these steps will build the foundation for a fun and successful home search at the Lake of the Ozarks. Once you've completed these four steps, it's time to get started on the remaining five.

Buying a home is such an exciting experience. It's a chance to start fresh, a chance to create a whole new life for yourself in a brand new environment.

Buying a home at the Lake of the Ozarks can seem a little overwhelming, especially if it's your first time, but it doesn't have to be hard.

People refinance their homes for a lot of reasons. Most commonly, refinancing is used to readjust the terms of the mortgage loan (such as shortening or extending it) or to get a lower interest rate. One thing most people don't think about when refinancing, though, is the impact it will have on their title insurance policies. If you're thinking about refinancing your home at the Lake of the Ozarks, here is some important information to keep in mind.

Refinancing - It's Still A Home LoanWhen you refinance your home, you are essentially taking out a new loan to pay off the original loan in full. Because you are taking out a brand new loan, you will have to undergo the same process (and cover the same costs) that you did when you originally purchased your home. For example, you will probably need to... Purchase a professional appraisal of your propertyCover the closing costs associated with the loanPurchase a lender's title policy to protect the lenderYour lender will provide…
