Your Offer

This is a BIG Step

When you find your dream home, you should present a competitive offer immediately. The Joyer Home Team has extensive experience in contract negotiations. They will ensure you get just what you want for a fair price – a transaction in your best interest. For the offer an earnest money check is required to indicate good faith; earnest money is typically $1500 or one percent of the sale price.

The Contract

When the seller accepts your offer, you go under contract. You want to make sure every detail is handled accurately and immediately. The Joyer Home Team will ensure your home closes properly and on time.

Inspections/Closing Preparations

Final details are handled and inspections are performed to ensure the property is ready for you. After home inspection details are finalized, the Joyer Home Team will keep in contact with your Loan Officer and Title Agent to ensure the appraisal is completed on time, and title work is in order. We will guide you through the process by sending reminders to order home insurance, utility information, and setting up the final walk through.

Now it is YOURS!

The Next Step Will Be Into Your New Home

Be prepared: Bring a list of where you have lived the past 10 years, your drivers license, a checkbook, a certified check, made payable to the Title Company, for your closing costs and downpayment, and your insurance binder to the closing. After closing the next steps you will take will be over the threshold of your new home!
