Your offer has been accepted! Yay!
What happens next? I'm so glad you asked!
Loop in your Mortgage Broker. I can help send them all of the details of your purchase and they can get started on their paperwork. You'll meet with them closer to your close date to finalize all the details of your financing.
We'll send everything over to your Lawyer. Here are a few I've worked with and recommend, but feel free to use your own! Closer to closing day you'll meet with your Lawyer to sign all of the paperwork.
Do you need a home inspection? Let's get that set up! Here's some home inspectors I've worked with in the past that have taken great care with my clients.
We'll do some pre-closing inspections where we can walk through the property to take some measurements, ensure all of the appliances are working as they should, and that everything is in good working order. If there were repairs the sellers agreed to do, this is a good time to confirm they were completed, too.
Once all of these steps are done and all of the paperwork is signed, we just have to wait for closing day. On closing day your Lawyer and their Lawyer will do all the heavy lifting ensuring the correct funds get transferred. Once that's complete, then you'll get your keys and the house is yours!
