Video thumbnail w play arrow.png

Call KBT, and the person who most likely picks up the phone is Janine Pugh, Director of Client Development.

"Of the Kirk and Janine Pugh marriage, I'm definitely the social one," Janine laughs. "I love being able to talk with people and connect with them."

With a personality that is, as she describes it, very chatty, very outgoing, and very personable, Janine is perfectly suiting for her role at KBT. For five years, Janine has been working with people who register on the KBT Realty Group website. If they are considering moving to the southeastern coastal North Carolina area, she is one of the first people at KBT that they are going to interact with. Watch the video.

What Happens When Your Home Appraisal Comes in Short?

Screen Shot 2020-09-28 at 11.51.15 AM.pngWhen the property appraises in line with the proposed purchase price and the amount of the buyer's loan, there are generally no issues with the appraisal. But when the home appraisal - a judgement on the value of a home conducted by a state-licensed or certified appraiser - comes up short of the purchase price, buyers could find themselves in a financing conundrum.

Because the actual property serves as collateral for a loan if the borrower defaults on the loan, the lender must ensure that the actual loan is not larger than the appraised value of the property.

But what if the appraisal comes in for less than the buyer's offer on the home, and less than the requested loan? Rather than abandon the offer, buyers do have options. Read more here.
