Identify Decision Makers
Do you have any family or friends who need to approve your new purchase? Let’s include them in the buying process early! This can make the process much easier and help you make a great buying decision.
Remember, even in today's market, time is of the essence. Having a plan from the start can make the difference.
Have Money On Hand
Every written offer must accompany a good faith deposit usually equal to 1% of the purchase price.
The larger the good faith deposit is, the stronger the offer will look to the seller.
Inspections typically cost $500 or less and home appraisals typically cost around $500.
Home Search Outline
When you select our team to assist you with your home search, you may be asked to complete a home search outline.
This outline provides valuable information to the team regarding your desired home. When we are in the field listing homes, we will compare your requirements to the homes we are listing.
This outline also puts the telemarketing department on notice. They will make a list of the owners in your desired areas and call to locate future sellers.
How To Write An Offer
After we locate a property to purchase, we 1st determine market value by comparing similar homes that have sold and that are for sale.
After determining an offer price, we prepare the written offer and present it to the seller.
We negotiate the offer until an agreement is made between the buyer and seller.
Once the offer is accepted, we open escrow and send the good faith deposit to the title / escrow company.
When Do We Notify The Lender?
After an agreement is made, we will send a copy of the contract to the lender.
The lender enters the information i.e. purchase price, length of escrow and down payment into their system and calendars all deadlines.
The appraisal is ordered.
A cost break down is given to you by the lender. This will give you the approximate monthly payment and amount of money that is needed to be brought in at the closing.
When Do We Order Inspections?
Every offer to purchase has an inspection period.
This inspection period provides you with an opportunity to perform a whole house inspection, termite inspection and any other inspections that you deem appropriate.
We will order all of the desired inspections for you.
We will provide you with copies of all seller disclosures to review.
The average inspection periods last 21 days in Tehama County.
Review Estimated Closing Statements
Within a few days of close of escrow we will review the closing statements.
We will ensure that all figures are accurate.
Once the statements are approved, we set a time for you to sign at the title company.
Pre-Move In And Final Walk-Thru

Prior to close of escrow, our team will provide you with the phone numbers to the appropriate utility companies for easy set up.
