Taking the Plunge~ The Team "Behind the Scenes" of Buying a home in Belfair WA~

buying a home - taking the plungeWe have just finished your home inspection (Taking the Plunge -Home Inspection) and negotiated with the seller a few minor but workable repair issues. We're moving forward! The home is now officially pending! 

You have all the right "gear" along with the right team members to TAKE THE PLUNGE into home ownership!

You took the plunge into home ownership and we are swimming along rather nicely....

Behind the scenes your Team is working away diligently on all the little details that are needed to move towards the closing of your purchase.

When realtors refer to a purchase and sale being "signed around" or mutually accepted that is the term they tend to use when you and the seller came to agreement on the Purchase and Sale contract for the home. At that time, I opened escrow with the escrow company that was agreed upon in the purchase and sale, as well as deposited your earnest money check with the escrow company. 

I also sent a copy of your purchase and sale to your lender and made contact to ensure that they had all of the information that they needed from myself and you regarding the property to get rolling on the financing of your new home.  They too are diligently working behind the scenes towards the closing of your purchase.

When we first wrote your purchase and sale, I set your file up so that I can easily track how the process is going and make sure that the deadlines in the contract are met once we came into agreement with the seller. I check daily to make sure we are on track. So far so good! 

I have also been in constant communication with the real estate agent who is representing the seller so that they know that we are diligent about the process of closing the transaction and so the agent can keep the seller informed. There is nothing worse than not knowing what is going on or not hearing ANYTHING for a long period of time. It is very, very important to me, to have constant communication. 

Even if I have no news specifically for you, I will be communicating alot with you and the rest of our "team" so that all parties know what is going on. I also want you to know that I am available to answer any and all of your questions.buying a home to do list

There are things that YOU need to be doing as well. I gave you a check list of some of the things that you are going to need to be taking care of (such as packing and moving particulars), while I am taking care of other items regarding your transaction.

Our next discussion will be on how your "to do" list is coming along. See you then!
