Step One: The Home Search Process
Selecting the Perfect Home & Due Diligence
Step Three: The Offer and Negotiations
Step Four: Home Inspections & Mortage Application
There are a couple things we need to do now that the home is under contract: The first item of importance is loan application. Loan application involves feeling out all the paperwork necessary to procure a loan. Our South Carolina contracts usually stipulate a period of time by which you must get this done. Usually this is 10 or more days from the Effective Date. Next, you will need to select a home inspector and termite inspector. If you need a reference here are some I have used in the past. If you would like to schedule the inspections, feel free to do so or you can make your selections and have the inspectors phone me to schedule. I will have to let them into the home; you are welcome to attend as well. Third note, please try not to make any changes to your credit during this process until we close (e.g. Open a new credit card account, close an account, buy a car, etc). This is just good adviceƒº
