Offer

Making an Offer can be stressfull. Know that I am here to help. By knowing our market and using my experiance I can assist your  when determining your offer price. I can also provide you a Comparative Market Analysis.  This is a comparison of recent sales of similar properties that have similar criteria to the house you are looking to purchase. Once you have established a fair price, you're ready to write an offer.

Your sales professional will present the offer to the seller or the seller's agent. The seller will either accept, reject or counter your offer. You may either sign it as it is showing your agreement, or make a counteroffer.

When both the seller and buyer agree to the terms and sign the document, it becomes a valid contract.

After the closing, the mortgage servicer collects your monthly payments and handles your escrow account.

During this process you may need a varity of services from an electrician to lawn service.
