1. Mortgage Lender
With just about all transactions, you have to be pre-qualified or pre-approved for the loan amount. So you need to have a lender that understands your financial needs and will work on your behalf to get the best interest rate and terms for you.
2. Escrow & Title Company
The escrow company needs to make sure that the process is followed on both sides of the transaction. The contract stipulates the process and it is the escrow company that follows these instructions to ensure the transaction process goes as scheduled and is followed and closes on time. The title company does a search to ensure there are no liens and that the title is clear. You cannot take title and the property will not close if the title is not clear. During this process if there is a lien, the title company will make sure that escrow is informed and instructions will be set up to pay the lien off before the close of escrow.
3. Inspection Process
With out the right inspector, you may not get an accurate picture of what issues are disclosed that may need repair or replacement. You do get a disclosure statement from the seller but that is just a starting point. The inspector can also recommend other inspections that may need to be done. Is your electrical and plumbing in good working order? Does there appear to be leaks. Could the roof need repair or replacement? Are there other systems that may need servicing? Without the right inspector, these are just a few of the areas that may go unnoticed or undiscovered.
Your REALTOR® is the “point person” to ensure that your home buying experience is not a nightmare for you. By picking the right REALTOR® you can be kept well informed of solutions and decision you need to make.
If you are not in Sedona or the Verde Valley, I may be able to recommend the right REALTOR® for you.
