Buyers tip of the week!!


Congratulations! A seller has accepted your offer. Before you can take possession of
your new home, however, several important details must fall into place. Count on your
Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) to explain each step in the process and answer
your questions.

While each transaction is unique, the most important steps include:

1.† COMPLETE A HOME INSPECTION
Assuming this contingency was in your offer, schedule a thorough inspection of the property with a qualified home inspector.
The inspector should provide you with a written report
detailing any flaws found in the home, including information about the severity of his or her findings. If
severe problems are found, your contingency clause should permit you to cancel the contract without
obligation. Alternately, you may want to negotiate performance and payment for any significant repairs
noted in the inspection. But also remember that no home is perfect and small repairs and maintenance
issues should not derail the transaction or require another round of negotiations.

2 FINALIZE YOUR MORTGAGE
Securing a mortgage can be more complex and expensive than many consumers realize. Numerous
documents and details must come together in a short period of time. Make sure you have promptly
supplied your lender with everything they ask for so your financing is in place for closing day.

3. GET READY TO MOVE!!!!!
Moving may be the biggest job you face in buying a home. Be sure to get a jump on these preparations.
First, decide how much help you’ll need. If you plan to hire a moving company, compare costs and make
a reservation. Other important details include coordinating dates to end service with all utilities and
establish service in your
new home. Make sure the post office has been notified of your change in address, as well as your bank,
credit card companies, insurance agent, attorney, other key professionals, and family and friends.

4. ATTEND A FINAL WALK-THROUGH
A pre-closing walk-through is a final check to ensure that the home is in the same condition it was
during the inspection, and to make sure all contracted items, such as appliances, are still in the home.
The timing of the final walk-through will vary, depending on practices in your market.

5.† PREPARE TO PAY CLOSING COSTS
When you applied for your mortgage, you received a good-faith estimate of closing costs. As closing
approaches, you’ll need to determine exactly how much money you will be expected to bring to closing
and what forms of payment are accepted.

As always enjoy!!
