“Where Buyers Come From”

Contract Presentation

will present all contracts to you with a thorough analysis and review of each contract, as well as our recommendations for response, including corrections and additions to contracts, price counteroffer, if appropriate. We will assist in negotiations through final ratification.

Escrow Period

will oversee the structural inspection, termite inspection, and track the financing throughout the contingency period. The structural inspection will usually last from 2 – 5 hours. We will oversee the inspection for the sellers; it is better if the seller is not present. After the inspection, purchasers will generally submit a list of repairs to the sellers. We will assist you with your response. The termite inspection is ordered and paid for by either the buyers or the sellers as noted in the contract. Sellers are responsible for treating infestation and repairing any existing termite damage unless the property is being conveyed in “as it” condition. The financing contingency, if there is one, states that purchasers are obligated to obtain financing within a certain time period (see specific language in contract).

After the Sale

Sellers who will be staying in the area are welcome to call our office anytime in the future, for our Resource List information, which references every category from “architects” to “zoning”.
