Timeline of Buying a Home

This agenda outlines the steps toward having your offer on a home accepted:

 

HIRE OUR TEAM

• It’s FREE! The seller pays the buyer's agent’s commissions

• Schedule an initial in-person meeting to discuss your goals & see a few homes

• Sign an agency agreement / 12-month Buyer-Broker Agreement with our team – we don’t push you to find a home quickly!

PRE-APPROVAL

• We will supply you with a list of preferred lenders who can get you pre-approved

• You will determine what you are comfortable spending on your monthly payments, which will quantify the price range we will be searching for you

THE SEARCH

• We will set up email notifications to you for homes matching your search

• We will subscribe you directly to the Utah MLS for a more specific immediate hot sheet for instant notifications of new updates

• We will schedule private showing appointments as needed, fitting your schedule

• We will take you on neighborhood tours to help narrow down your search area/s

• We will notify you of open houses for the houses you have interest in and suggest you attend as many of those as possible

WRITING OFFERS

• We will suggest an offer price using recent sales, days on market and property condition

• You will determine your offer price and included contingencies

• You will sign your offer

• We will assist you in compiling the appropriate documents to include with your offer (i.e. proof of funds, letter of the heart, pre-approval letter from the lender)

• We will request to present your offer to the listing agent and/or seller offer acceptance

• Once your offer is accepted, we will assist you in navigating the escrow process

ESCROW (DISCLOSURES & INSPECTIONS - 30-45 DAYS)

• We will deliver copies of any available seller reports and disclosure for a given home

• We will determine inspections & arrange contractor walk-throughs

CLOSING

• Signing, Keys, and TIME TO PACK!
