When you are getting ready to buy a home, it is important to align yourself with the professionals you need to get the job done. They need to work together and take care of the loose ends. Although we will be there leading the way, having the additional support of your home-buying team will make all the difference when it comes to having a seamless transaction. We have worked with many professionals and are happy to help you build this team as needed.
Lender – Getting completely pre-approved with a lender is one of the most important steps you can take to make yourself buyer-ready. The lender you choose should have a reputation for being a problem-solver and for getting the transaction to close.
Appraiser – Although the appraiser will be assigned by the lender, doing a great job of choosing your lender is a good indicator of the strength of the appraiser in terms of getting the job done in a timely manner and utilizing great local data to make sure your investment is a sound one.
Inspector – You are able to choose the inspector who will be conducting the inspection on your home. You want to find someone who is thorough, provides you with a written report and photos, charges market rate, and who can be scheduled within a few days of your offer.
Escrow – Escrow makes sure that all the documentation is correct, timelines are met, and all the details are adhered to in the transaction. They will also make sure all parties sign the correct forms and that all monies are distributed correctly.
Title – Title will review the property history, verify that the legal description matches what is being sold, make sure the seller has the right to sell the property, identify other possible lienholders, identify easements, codes, covenants and restrictions, and more. You want to make sure the title company has a reputation for identifying all potential problems.
