The Sales Process
In preparation of receiving offers, we will set up the necessary disclosure documents for you to review and prepare them together. While we are prepare these disclosures, we will also make a list of suggested repairs to prevent any potential buyer red flags.
Broker Preview and Open Houses
Depending on your preferences, if you would like us to host broker previews and open houses to allow potential buyers and their agents to view your property, we will determine a schedule that works best for you and potential buyers.
Negotiations, Initial Agreement and Deposit
We believe in ethically, responsibly and fairly negotiating terms to create a win-win situation for everyone. As your agent, we promise to thoroughly and objectively review each offer with you to help you make the best decision. We will negotiate on your behalf so you get the best price for your home. An effective agreement is a legal arrangement between you and the potential buyer. In Montana, in order for the offer to become a legally binding agreement, a consideration is required in the form of a deposit. This deposit is held in the closing agent’s escrow account until the fulfillment of the agreement.
Escrow, Title and the Closing Agent
Once you accept an offer from the potential buyer and the contract is set in motion, we will open escrow. The escrow holder has the responsibility to watch over the funds and/or documents and then pay out the funds and/or transfer the title only when all the requirements of the escrow have been completed. Either a title company or an attorney will be selected as the closing agent, whose job is to examine and insure clear title to real estate. After researching the complete recorded history of your property, they will certify that your title is free and clear by the date of closing and that any new encumbrances are noted in the title.
Inspections and Appraisals
Most buyers will have the property inspected by a licensed property inspector within the time frame that was agreed upon in the purchase contract. If the agreement is conditional upon financing, then a licensed third party appraiser will review the property in order to confirm that the investment value for your home is accurate for the lending institution.
Upon inspection of the home, a buyer will either remove the inspection contingencies or request a renegotiation of the terms of the contract. This could be a request for repairs or a credit in lieu of repairs. We will negotiate on your behalf and give you everything you need to make the best decision for the sale of your home.
Loan Approval and Appraisal
We suggest that you accept buyers who have a lender’s pre-approval, approval letter, or written loan commitment, which is a better guarantee of loan. Expect an appraiser from the lender’s company to review your property and verify that the sales price is appropriate.
A contingency is a condition that must be met before a contract becomes fully executed and legally binding. For instance, a buyer will usually include a contingency stating that their contract is binding only when there is a satisfactory home inspection report from a qualified inspector; it could be contingent upon obtaining a loan; or the sale of the buyers current home. Once the terms of the contingencies have been met and removed, your home is almost ready to close. Before closing the buyer will inspect your home again with their agent to confirm that nothing has changed and that everything is in the same state it was
The Final Inspection
The final walk through inspection usually takes place near your closing date. At this time, the buyer will visit your property to verify that everything is still in working order, nothing has been left behind, and that everything included in the purchase is still at the property.
The Closing Appointment
The closing agent will give all parties involved a settlement statement, which summarizes and details the financial transactions created in the process.
- Review and sign the closing settlement statement
- Electronically wire the funds into the closing agent’s escrow account or bring a certified bank check to closing in the amount stated on the closing statement.
- If the buyer is financing the purchase then they will need to sign all loan documents required by the lending institution
- At closing, the you should have all property keys and important information related to the property prepared for the buyer to receive at the appointment.
