Buying & Selling Real Estate in Jacksonville NC is a different kind of experience.  We do things here that are unheard of in some parts of the country, because of our young military families and retirees.  The common saying is they are "credit rich but cash poor".  Our military have the VA to back their loans, so they don't have to put a percentage of the purchase price toward the purchase.  VA loans are the majority of loans done here.  So don't think that the local lenders here don't know how to do a VA loan, any successful Mortgage Person in this town can probably do a VA loan in their sleep.  If you are talking to a Mortgage Person and don't get the feeling that they know what they are talking about with a VA loan, find a different lender.

Seller's here usually end up paying a portion of the buyers closing costs because of the buyers lack of cash.  And most sellers are okay with it because the person that they bought the home from did the same for them.  We really do all try to work together to reach the common goal of bringing home buyers & sellers together in a mutually beneficial arrangement.  Helping families find a home they want, helping sellers move on to their next home is what it's all about.
