Hughes Home Team Realtors, Attorney, Inspector… We have stellar recommendations. In nearly all home/property purchases, the buyer does not pay the cost of using the realty professional. Realtors typically get compensated through the commission paid by the seller.
Hughes Home Team realtors ask that you complete a Home Buying Checklist in order to identify wants and needs as we help navigate your search.

Once the wire transfer has been confirmed and closing is complete, you are given the keys to your new home.
