During the home buying process you may hear industry terms. Keep this list of definitions handy and you’ll soon be throwing around industry terms yourself.

Our New Home Specialist love helping with the home search and providing their expertise—after all, it’s the second-best part of buying a home. Getting the keys is #1, of course.
