26 May Tips To Help Make Your Home Buying Experience As Seamless as Possible
If you’ve ever purchased a home, or are in the process of buying, it will come as no surprise to you that the home buying process is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make.Although some aspects of your new home purchase will be handled with your qualified real estate agent, escrow officer and title company, educating yourself can also be a huge asset. To help, we’ve compiled a list of items that can help make the transition as stress-free as possible.
1. Ensure that you have an established closing date.
As a team, your real estate agent and title company will work together to schedule the closing date for your new home. Just make sure that this timeline coincides with the sale of your current home or the end of your current lease. This will make the transition much smoother.
2. Coordinate your funds.
A common requirement is that you must bring funds to the closing of your new home. If you have money tied up in stock or a savings account work to make those funds liquid so that they can be easily accessed.
3. Conduct a final walk through of the home.
A final walk through is never a bad idea. Work with your real estate agent to take a peek at the home one final time prior to closing. This will ensure that no major changes have taken place prior to the last time you saw the property. This also gives you the opportunity to verify that all of the agreed upon alterations have been made.
