What to expect after you sign a real estate contract: the steps from contract to close on your new home purchase.
Like many, you dreamed of buying a new home. You searched the internet, walked through a couple of open houses, chose your Realtor®. You were told you will need full loan approval before beginning your search in earnest and found out exactly how much home you could afford. With your Realtor®, you viewed the homes which would fit your price range, your location and size requirements and found THE home. Your Realtor® wrote up the contract and IT WAS ACCEPTED!!! What do you do now?
First, you have to give an earnest money check. Then, get all of the final information over to the mortgage company and pay for the appraisal. The title company will send you a gazillion forms you have to fill out and send back. You have to order and pay for the home inspection and meet the home inspector at the property to go over his/her findings. In Arizona, you have 10 days to inspect the property and ask for any repairs you wish the seller to complete. You have to order your homeowner's insurance. You have to get your home warranty. Of course, you have to determine how you're going to move into your new home - bribe friends and relatives or pay for a moving company. You get writer's cramp signing all the necessary paperwork and have to bring a certified or cashier's check to the closing table or have your bank wire the funds.
Does this seem a little overwhelming? Know that I will be there each step of the way. I would have prepared you for all of this while we were viewing properties. If you need referrals for inspectors, insurance, movers - whomever, I will have contacts of people I have known to perform well. I will send over the contract and loan approvals to all parties. I will help you fill out any required forms from the title company or loan company. I will order your home inspection and home warranty after you have chosen the ones you want. I will coordinate times for all parties to meet. I will review the title report and all docs alongside the title company. I will be there step by step through the contract to closing process. My job doesn't stop at signing the contract - that is only the beginning.
If you know what to expect AFTER the contract, you'll know where you need to assign your valuable time. Don't hesitate to ask questions - if I don't know the answers, I will find out.
After all of your hard work, there is no feeling like receiving your keys to your new home - MY FAVORITE part of being a Realtor®.
If you're looking for a home to purchase in Scottsdale/Cave Creek/north Phoenix, please call me. I'll be there for you from start to finish.
