THE ESCROW PROCESS
Meet with a Real Estate Professional
There's no commitment required on your part for the initial meeting. It will be educational and help you identify your next steps.
Establish a Price
Your agent will provide a market analysis, which will help you set an asking price.
Prepare your Home
View your home through the eyes of the buyer and ask yourself what you'd expect. Your agent will offer more useful suggestions.
List it for Sale
When everything is in place, your agent will put your home on the open market. It's critical you make it as easy as possible for potential buyers to view your home.
Review and Negotiate
If everything goes well, a buyer (and most often, the agent who represents them), will present your agent with an offer.
At this point, you and the buyer have agreed to all the terms of the offer and both parties have signed the agreement.
While under contract a buyer will perform inspections on the property and will expect to negotiate repairs, closing costs credits in lieu of repairs, or purchase price reductions.
This is the transfer of funds and ownership. Depending on when the buyer moves into the home you will need to be all packed up and ready to move.
