We will list the home on the Internet, print out flyers, and post signs to advertise the sale of the home.
Accept, Reject, or Counter Offer
If the buyer is unable to pay full price up front, which is more than likely to happen, they will have to apply for a mortgage loan with their financial institution.
This step involves searching public records to determine whether the seller has the authority to sell the property.
The buyer’s financial institution will require an appraisal before they can approve the loan. A certified, state-licensed professional will examine the house to determine the actual value. If the amount of their pre-qualified loan exceeds the actual value of the home, the loan may not be approved and the sale will not go through.
If all goes well with the inspection, title search, and appraisal, the bank should approve the buyer for the requested loan amount.
Closing Papers Signed
One of the last steps of the home selling process includes you, Bonnie, the buyer, and their real estate agent. Bonnie will advise you on reviewing and signing legal documents. These will include the bill of sale, transfer tax declarations, the house deed, and buyer/seller settlement statements.
Funds Available to Seller
Typically, funds will be available to the seller on the same day that the sale is finalized. Although, the exact date will depend upon the buyer’s financial institution.
Seller Moves Out
You must vacate the property by the date agreed upon between both parties.
Buyer Moves in
Finally, the buyer will get to move into their new home.
