The real estate expert also said that there are some mistakes people can make later when you have decided to make an offer


She added that once the transaction process begins, buyers should be firm with lawyers and realtors

“And then people may be too respectful of lawyers who should be harassed as much as the real estate agent,” she explained

Phil added: “Lawyers provide you a service, you pay the bill, so you have to ask for the service”

Besides the deposit, property tax, stamp duty and appraisal fees, several other costs are involved

If you have hired a real estate agent, they charge a fee; surveyors who will examine the condition of a house can cost a few hundred pounds and lawyers or licensed carriers can also cost just under £ 1000

There is also the cost of electronic transfer fees, moving fees and mortgage fees such as booking, arranging and evaluating the mortgage

Once you have bought your home and moved in, there will also be the costs of repair or renovation, insurance and running costs of your home

Love It or List It with Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer airs tonight on Channel 4 at 8 p.m.
