Purchasing a home is a very exciting process, and the first step is to contact us! We’ll first talk about your needs and get you set up with a lender who can qualify you for a loan if you need one. Once the lender gives us the thumbs up, we’ll begin looking for that perfect house. Our next step will be to put an offer on a home. We assess the home’s value and agree on the terms of the offer before sending it to the seller for their consideration.
Once our offer is accepted, we move into escrow. If you’ve ever made an informal bet with a friend, you may have asked a third person to hold the money until the wager was complete. Once a purchase price is agreed upon between the buyer and the seller, they then do something similar by opening an escrow. The escrow process helps protect all parties involved in the transaction.
Money is put into escrow and is held by a neutral third party (escrow agent) while the terms of the agreement are being executed. The agent’s role is to carry out the instructions that were agreed upon by both parties. When all the terms of the agreement are met, the money is released. Escrow can be involved in anything from a residential purchase to purchases made on multi-million dollar building projects. The escrow period of the home buying process is traditionally 30 days long. However, both parties may agree to a different time table. As your agents, we coordinate with your escrow officer, loan officer and all other parties involved to be sure the transaction goes smoothly.
Once all terms of the agreement are met we close escrow, transfer final payments and hand over keys! Who you choose to represent you is crucial. We prepare and negotiate your offer to get you the best deal possible while beating out the competition.
