Looking at For Sale By Owner & New Home Subdivision Properties
- You must have me arrange an appointment and accompany you when you look at any of these! Let me explain why this is critical for you to save money and be protected!
There are many factors that go into a lender’s establishing the maximum you qualify for. I will arrange for you to quickly and confidentially know your pre-approved loan amount and down payment.
- Establishes how much you can afford to borrow
- Is not an assurance of mortgage approval
- Is a firm decision on a home loan
- Makes you a “cash buyer” in seller’s eyes
- Gives you increased bargaining power
Once we find the right property for you, completing the purchase involves several steps including:
- Full written Seller disclosure statement of any know defects or issues
- Writing your offer to purchase the property and negotiating terms & conditions you want
- Finalizing the purchase agreement
- Professional property inspections and home warranty
- Arranging title insurance and appraisal
- Final walk-through prior to closing
- Attending closing and title transfer to you!
The Financing & Closing Process
- Loan application is completed and submitted to lender
- Lender orders appraisal, credit report, verification of your employment and assets
- Lender provides a good faith estimate of closing and related costs, plus initial Truth In Lending disclosures
- Lender evaluates application and support documents, approves loan and issues letter of commitment
- Closing is held, loan documents are signed and the loan is funded
- Lender disburses funds to the settlement or closing agent, seller is paid and title to the home is transferred to you!
- Required documents are recorded at the County office of records
I will also help you prepare for a smooth closing.
As part of my service to you I will:
- Track the satisfactory completion of all contingencies and conditions required under your purchase agreement.
- Keep you informed of the progress of the transaction until it closes.
