The time will come when one of our potential buyers who viewed your property will submit an offer. Your agent will walk you through the offer explaining the details, evaluating how closely it meets your needs. You may choose to accept, reject, or counter the offer. By countering, you encourage negotiations to take place in the hope that you and the buyer will come to an agreement that satisfies both parties.

During this time you will need to choose an attorney to represent you. They will draw up a contract of sale. The buyer will have your property inspected by a certified home inspector, and further negotiations may take place based on the results of the inspection and requested repairs. Simultaneously, the lender will order an appraisal to determine your property’s worth, and the title company will warrant that there is a clear and transferable title on the property. During this time we are in constant contact with all parties to facilitate the transaction.
7. The Closing
Necessary repairs were completed if any. The buyer schedules a final walk thru. Your home is vacant and broom swept. The lender and title documents have been processed. Now, its time to close the sale. The closing generally takes place at the closing attorney’s office and usually take about an hour to complete. Your agent and attorney will accompany you to the closing. Once your attorney reviews and has you sign all documents provided and funds have been distributed, the keys are passed along to the buyer.
