The costs to close on a Spring Texas house are significant easily totaling several thousand dollars. Due to the magnitude of the closing costs, it is easy to understand why buyers are looking at every way possible to save money. One way you can save money is by using the sellers existing survey. How much can you save? Around $300 to $500 which is how much it will cost if you have to get a new survey for the house.
Both your lender and the title company have to agree to accept the sellers existing survey and the majority of time they will. But the majority of the time is not all of the time. Thus there are instances in which you will not be able to use the existing survey the seller has of his Spring Texas house.

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house was under contract in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
