The real estate industry can be a scary and confusing place for newbies. Even those with experience in the industry can still find it confusing to either buy or sell a home, as rules can differ from state to state, lending institutions all have their own protocols, and then there are the requests of the seller or buyer you are working with. Another thing that can come as a real surprise to both buyers and sellers are the hidden costs of a real estate transaction. These costs can be relatively small and minor, or quite high, even climbing into the thousands.
