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.

I relocated from out of state and Jill went above and beyond to help me find the perfect home. We had multiple calls in preparations of my trip to the Houston area and Jill really took the time to understand my needs and desires. Once I had decided on my home she continued to take time out of her personal schedule to show me the area. Jill focused on activities and areas that were kid friendly and we gathered documentation that I was able to share with my children to help get them excited about the move. Jill negotiated additions to my home that I did not think were possible and she held the builder to high standards. My home is perfect. I will use Jill for any future needs and will recommend her to family and friends! read less
