  9. 9. Buyer’s CMA <ul><li>As your agent, it’s my job to provide you with information that will help you make smart </li></ul><ul><li>decisions. </li></ul><ul><li>As we narrow your home choices to a particular home, I’ll create a Comparative Market Analysis, highlighting similar </li></ul><ul><li>properties in the neighborhood. This important tool will give you a “snapshot” of homes that are currently listed for sale, as </li></ul><ul><li>well as those that have sold recently or expired from the market without selling. </li></ul><ul><li>Reviewing this report together, we’ll determine an appropriate price to offer the seller. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Preparing an Offer + Closing <ul><li>The “purchase agreement” is the most important document we’ll craft together: it contains the terms and conditions of </li></ul><ul><li>purchase you’re offering the seller (price, timeframe, what’s included with the house), and lives on once your bid is accepted </li></ul><ul><li>as instructions for the mortgage lender and title company. </li></ul><ul><li>Negotiate + Close </li></ul><ul><li>As your buyer’s agent, I will negotiate (sometimes vigorously!) to ensure that your best interests are protected. I will work </li></ul><ul><li>with the seller’s listing agent to protect what’s important to you, and to create a “win/win” transaction in which both you and </li></ul><ul><li>the seller are satisfied. </li></ul><ul><li>Inspection </li></ul><ul><li>Real Living strongly believes in the value of a thorough home inspection by a qualified professional. Generally, home buyers </li></ul><ul><li>don’t hesitate to follow through with the purchase of a home that has flaws. As long as the problems are identifiable and </li></ul><ul><li>remediable, most home sales proceed as anticipated. We have also found that home inspections are very protective of </li></ul><ul><li>sellers, preventing later legal action over defects that were undisclosed and unanticipated. </li></ul><ul><li>Warranty </li></ul><ul><li>A home warranty is an excellent investment, insuring the working systems of your new home for the year following your </li></ul><ul><li>purchase. You’ll enjoy the peace of mind that comes with guarding against unforeseen repairs. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Preparing an Offer + Closing <ul><li>Title </li></ul><ul><li>Once you and the seller have finalized your contract, the title company will research your new property’s ownership history </li></ul><ul><li>and enable the purchase of a Title Insurance policy. This protects both buyers and sellers, should someone make a claim to </li></ul><ul><li>own all or a portion of the property. </li></ul><ul><li>Title insurance protects against many types of risks, including: </li></ul><ul><li>• Forged deeds or other documents </li></ul><ul><li>• Claims by previously undisclosed heirs </li></ul><ul><li>• Inaccurate descriptions of property and boundaries </li></ul><ul><li>• Mistakes in public records </li></ul><ul><li>• Fraudulent acts </li></ul><ul><li>… and many other problems. </li></ul><ul><li>Closing and Move-In </li></ul><ul><li>When your home purchase “closes,” title will transfer from the seller’s name to yours. Before we pop the champagne cork, </li></ul><ul><li>we’ll want to review the closing process, which varies according to market area. </li></ul><ul><li>Your “possession” date may or may not coincide with your closing date. I will oversee your purchase agreement with a </li></ul><ul><li>specific timeline in mind, reflecting your needs and what the seller can accommodate. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s all negotiable, and we want to be sure you understand everything clearly. </li></ul>
