If your home is vacant, please make sure it is clean (inside and out) and move in ready for a fast 30 day close.
If your home is occupied by you, please make sure it is clean, staged nicely, and people are out of the way when showings happen.
- Think of how you would want to see a home when you are looking to buy, would you want to go further to look around or envision your belongings in the home? It is best to have your home professional cleaned, carpets cleaned, and landscape done.

Negotiating an offer:
You can choose to accept, counter, or decline.
If you want to counter, this is where you negotiate what you want, somewhere to meet in the middle. This is what we are here for
When agreement is made and contact is signed by both parties, the buyer will open up escrow. They will send a check for earnest deposit and order inspection along with termite inspection.
Buyers have 10 days from contract to do inspection and can walk away with no reasoning and no loss of earnest money within those 10 days.
They will send over a BINSR (Buyers asking Seller to fix things on inspection)
You decide what to fix and what not to.
The buyer will work on loan documents and their lender will order appraisal.
Appraisal will determine the market value and what a lender will lend. Some price adjusting may need to be done on the contract price or will need to meet half way or renegotiate
Note: If a buyer is using FHA the appraisal will stay on record for 90 days
When all set with appraisal, buyer will wait for loan to close and fund. You will then get a check from the title company.
If you are looking for a home…. You will need to be pre-qualified and can make an offer contingent upon your home selling, we can look for a home while your house is in process of selling.
