EVALUATE-ACCEPT

EVALUATE and ACCEPT OFFER

Before you decide, you should consider the proposed purchase price, contract contingencies (provisions in a contract requiring certain acts to be completed before the contract is binding. 1 ), earnest money deposit, (the money that will be given to escrow after the offer is accepted as a sign of the buyer’s good faith. 1 ), requested move-in date and offer expiration date.

Common Home Buyer Contingencies:

  • Home Inspection
  • Appraisal
  • Obtaining a Loan

AFTER THE OFFER IS ACCEPTED

You have successfully negotiated the offer on your new home. The next 30-60 days (the exact length of time depends on what was negotiated in the Purchase Agreement) will be a flurry of activity. The team coordinating your purchase and you, will diligently work together towards a common goal—the transfer of title.
