Local lenders (or local mortgage professional contacts for a lender) are critical team members when it comes to buying a home in Charlotte NC.

Our standard real estate purchase contracts are typically modified and adjusted annually, some recent changes over the past several years have added additional layers of responsibility and consequences on the buyer’s side of a Charlotte NC real estate purchase, particularly related to the financing.
