One step at a time.
Meet with Buyer Specialist to establish wish list and understand market conditions.
Connect with lender to be pre-approved for mortgage and to determine price range.
Visit properties that match your purchase parameters.
Make an offer to the seller based on price and terms you choose.
We will present all offers, negotiate the best one and ratify the contract.
Begins once contract is ratified. Credit report is run and verification documents are requested by lender.
Home Inspector completes thorough inspection of home, and issues report of findings. Negotiate repairs with the seller.
Lender orders appraisal (7-14 day turnaround).
Buyer orders homeowner’s policy, and requests binder be sent to settlement company. Orders flood insurance if applicable.
Termite and moisture inspection is ordered. Well and septic inspections are ordered, if applicable. Seller normally pays unless sold “As Is.”
Once the loan processing is complete, underwriter makes final determination of loan approval.
Underwriter sends a list of closing conditions to Loan Officer to complete prior to settlement.
Once closing conditions are cleared and settlement company has all title work, a “clear to close” is issued and the Closing Disclosure is sent to buyer for review (3 days prior to settlement).
Buyer does a final walk through of property several days before settlement to ensure all home inspection repairs are complete.
Typically, buyer and seller agree to transfer utilties on the day of settlement.
Buyer signs closing documents. Settlement company gets funding from the lender and records the deed.
Get the keys to your new home and celebrate! You’re officially a homeowner!
