Agent & Price
The buyer will have your property inspected by a licensed property inspector and/or several specialized inspectors. In addition, if a lending institution is involved on behalf of the buyer, the firm will require appraisal by a licensed real estate appraiser.
The Closing Agent.
The closing agent will be a title company or attorney who will assume the responsibility of researching and ensuring a clear title. Any new encumbrances will be included in the new title.
The buyer and his or her agent will scrutinize every aspect of the property, including:
- Reviewing all documents.
- Professional inspections such as roof, fireplace, chimney, pest, septic, pool, well, mold, lead-based paint and so on.
One of two things may happen depending on the outcome of these inspections:
- Contingencies will be removed and you will move a step closer to closing, or . . .
- The buyer may request a contract renegotiation.
Meeting contingencies and finding creative solutions to any problems are aspects vital to the success of any real estate transaction. Heather has become a specialist in that area and has established an impeccable track record of resolving contingency matters.
If the buyer requests a renegotiation, it is best to rely on Heather’s professional experience and expertise since an objective approach free of emotions is imperative.
It is strongly suggested that you consider only potential buyers presenting a lender’s pre-approval letter or written loan commitment.
