Frequently Asked Questions

A top real estate agent’s job is to guide you throughout the entire home buying or home selling process. They back you up with expert knowledge, experience and a plan to help you crush your housing goals. 

Since home buyers and sellers have different needs, there are almost always two real estate agents involved with every home transaction—a buyer’s agent  and a seller’s agent (or a listing agent). 

A buyer’s agent will guide you through the process of purchasing a home within your budget that fits your list of must-haves. On the other hand, a listing agent walks you through everything you need to do to get your home ready for sale. They know what it takes to get the home sold on your timeline and for the best price. 

We have confidence each of your recommended RamseyTrusted agents will serve you well or we wouldn’t have recommended them! But the most important factor when it comes to choosing your real estate agent is your own comfort level. We always recommend doing an interview with potential agents to find the best fit for your situation. Meeting the candidates in person and asking these questions will help you find out if your personalities click. That's a great foundation for building a connection with the RamseyTrusted agent you like the most!  

There’s no fee for coming through our site and using our service to find an agent. It’s our goal to get you connected with the right people so you can get the best help! If you choose to move forward with a RamseyTrusted agent, they’ll have a service commission for the help they provide. That’s an industry standard and true of any agent you may work with. We don’t control what RamseyTrusted pros charge, so if you have questions about the price of their services, it’d be great to ask them directly when you interview them! 

A 15-year fixed-rate conventional mortgage is the only kind of loan we ever recommend at Ramsey. It keeps you on track to pay off your house fast and has the lowest total cost. Other types of mortgages, like FHA, VA and 30-year loans, keep you in debt for decades and cost you tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars more in the long run. No, thanks!

Start by setting a goal of how much money you’d like to put toward your house every month. Then see where you can trim your budget to make those extra house payments. You can also dedicate work bonuses and raises to those extra payments. And if those ideas don’t have you moving as fast as you’d like, see if refinancing or downsizing would help you knock out that mortgage once and for all.
