Once you have chosen your home
- The Offer: Yea! We have found a house that you want to make an offer on. At this point we will take enough time to explain all of the contracts to you in detail! What they mean, what they are for and why we are using them. We will advise you on all aspects of the contract so that you can make the best decision on how much to pay, how much earnest money to put down, what to ask for after the inspection and etc…
- Acceptance: Congratulations! You have made an offer on the house you love and the seller accepted the offer. We now have a binding contract. We only have a couple of minor obstacles left before the house is yours.
- Inspection: This is the best education that you can get about your new house. A qualified inspector of your choice will be able to tell you many, many useful things about your new home. He or she is also there as a safety net should there be something seriously wrong with the house causing you to disapprove of the inspection. At this point we can still negotiate with the seller to repair whatever the defect is.
- Appraisal: Your lender will send some one out to make sure that the house is worth what you paid for it. There is rarely a problem here but should the house not appraise at the sale price you would not be forced to buy it.
- Signing: The escrow company will schedule you to sign all the documents a few days before your closing date. This insures that all the documents are ready to record on the scheduled closing date.
- Closing: Congratulations. Here comes the moving van. After you sign all the documents and the funds are available to the seller then the house becomes yours. Before this date you must have your homeowners insurance.
