Buying a Home
- Make offer to purchase and negotiate
- Offer accepted
- Loan Application
- Professional inspections (home inspection, termite, etc,)
- Title work and appraisal
- Walk-through and final closing
- Home Warranty
- Continued service and resource for real estate needs
As your Realtor® we will track the completion of all contingencies and conditions required under your purchase contract. We will keep you informed of the progress and any concerns.
Things to consider when determining to offer
- Features of the house: location, age, size of house and lot, physical condition, upcoming growth in area
- Market data: interest rates, availability of financing, qualified buyer demand, prices of recent sales in the neighborhood
- Competition: number of properties available, their price and terms, their location and physical condition, and how long they have been on the market
We will prepare a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) with information on properties with similar features to the one you are creating an offer for. It will describe homes that are currently on the market, sold recently, and homes that with withdrawn from the market.
We will present your written offer to the seller’s agent and negotiate on your behalf. The sellers have the following options.
- Accept your offer as is
- Reject it completely
- Respond with a counter offer
We will communicate to you the seller’s response and, if necessary, suggest further negotiating options. An accepted offer leads to a legally binding purchase contract.
If a claim is made against your title, title insurance protects you by defending your title as it is insured. It will also cover the legal fees associated with settling the case, or reimburse you for the actual monetary loss incurred—up to the dollar amount of insurance provided by the policy.
