Many of today's homebuyers are suffering from sticker shock—and not just over astronomical home prices.

Nearly half of homeowners, 44%, report they weren't aware of the costs associated with buying a home, according to a Realtor.comĀ® survey in July of nearly 3,000 adults, including 1,800 homeowners. (About 400 of the respondents were buyers who purchased a home within the past 15 months.) This includes paying for things like a home inspection, document fees, property taxes, home insurance, and title fees. About 11% weren't even factoring in moving expenses.

Testimonials

We used Mihara and Associates for both buying and selling a house. They are highly professional and very knowledgeable of the Tampa Bay real estate market. They are great to work with. They answered all of our questions. They helped us price our home right so that it sold quickly and helped us find the home we wanted in a sellers market. We would go back to them again the next time we need to sell or buy a house and would highly recommend them to anyone else who needs to sell or buy a house.
