Offers

What happens when we receive an offer:

  • Showing agent faxes or emails signed offer to us.
  • We forward the offer to you, discuss the quality and decide to accept or counter the offer.
  • Assuming we decide to counter offer the buyer’s offer we sign and send the counter offer to the showing agent. (This can occur several times before an agreement is reached)
  • Once all terms are agreed upon (Price, terms, closing date, any seller concession, fixtures included)
  • Seller Concession can include closing costs paid by the seller on behalf of the buyer, home warranties, gas line warranties, etc.

Inspections

  • Inspections occur next usually within 10 days and can include a termite, home inspection and a radon inspection as well as any other inspections the buyers may want to have completed.
  • Once inspections are complete the buyer decides whether or not to submit a “Request to Remedy” asking you to repair unsatisfactory items.

Closing

  • Once those terms are agreed upon we wait for the appraisal to be completed and the buyer to send us the loan commitment from their lender that their financing is approved.
