When someone prepares an offer, they advise your Integrity Real Estate agent who then makes an appointment to present it to you (all offers for your property MUST be presented to you).
Your Integrity Real Estate agent will counsel and advise you, but the final decision will be yours. Review every offer, comparing the financial qualifications and readiness of each buyer. You may accept an offer as is, reject it or come back with a counteroffer. This process continues until a deal is agreed upon or negotiations are terminated.
Rest assured that your Integrity Real Estate agent will be armed with information to help you negotiate the best deal. And for your protection, a deposit can be collected from the buyer prior to any acceptance of the purchase offer. A written agreement stating all conditions of the sale will be signed by both parties.
Now comes the time to sit back and be patient. The buyer is busy arranging mortgage financing. The real estate company and the title company are beginning to accumulate data and prepare documents. Your Integrity Real Estate agent is tracking the progress of the sale. It’s a good time for you to take a breather and start thinking about the next big step – moving into you new home.
Final closing day will be scheduled when all the steps are completed. Closing is when you and the buyer sign all the paperwork and pay your share of settlement fees, and the documents are recorded. Once you present an executed deed to the buyer and receive the check in the amount agreed upon, your house is successfully sold.
