Searching for a new home in Chapin, SC can be daunting, especially if you don’t know the area. There are tons of websites that claim you can search for listings on their site, and even give you a price, but did you know that Trulia and Zillow aren’t accurate?It’s true. It happens all the time. A client comes in thinking they’ve found the home of their dreams only to discover that the price tag is a nightmare.The truth about Trulia, and sites like Zillow, is that they are the real estate equivalent of a bad online dating site. The house you think you’ve been talking to all this time, is really fifty years old, with a cracked foundation, and more than skeletons in their closets. What’s worse is that the price you see on that house is only an estimate, and could vary wildly from the actual price! They use a fancy algorithm to calculate the price of the home based on zip code averages. I don’t need to tell you that you can judge a house by its zip code. These zip code averages leave out most of what actually determines the value of home. You could see how things like central air and forced air heating, versus baseboard or radiator heating, or marble tile versus fifteen year old carpeting, really effect how much a home in Chapin SC, or anywhere in the country, is worth.

""I was referred to Steve in the late part of 2015 from a co-worker that bought a house and at the time I was mentally ready to buy but my credit scores/budget was not. I called Steve back in 2015 to get information which he gave me some financial companies to try but at that time I could not get the financial approval. I told Steve at that time that I needed to work on my credit scores and I will call him back. Again this was 2015…. Thinking that I would never hear from him again since I was not prepared, Steve continued to call me every few months to check on the status of my situation and he continued to give me feedback, general information and tips along the way. Not only was I a single parent with a poor credit score, but I had faced some other challenges such as 2 surgeries in 2016 and a job layoff. Thankfully, through all of this, I continued to payoff credit cards and work on my credit score and finally in July of 2017, I got the approval I needed to purchase my very first home. And of course, the first person I called was Steve! Let’s face it, relationships don’t even last as long as the relationship Steve and I established in finding my 1st home. The customer service and communication that Steve provided is rare in this day and age. Thankfully I closed on my very first house 2 weeks ago and I am overjoyed with excitement that I am able to provide a home for my child. Steve was with me every step of a way and is a testimony for others out there looking to acquire home ownership or for the ones that feel it will never happen. I would recommend Steve Slavich with the Exit Realty team any day and will continue to place my trust in him for any future real estate endeavors that I may embark upon. Thanks Steve!""
