Understanding the buyer timeline and what is involved in buying a home is important, and there are many details that are critical in order to protect yourself and get to closing safely. There are only about 1,000 things that can go wrong. Lawyers make their living based on things that go wrong. I wrote an article earlier about the Home Buying Process and the Buyer Timeline, but I also wanted to include a short video for your viewing pleasure, and here it is. Because the Buyer Timeline has small print, you’ll want to enlarge the video on your monitor. Also, make sure you have your Youtube settings to view this video in HD quality.
The Buyer Timeline and Chronology
You’ve got plenty of online research to do long before you arrive in Sequim to view homes or land. You also will want to have an orderly process for viewing homes on an accurate Sequim MLS site. You can use Zillow all you want, but much of the information on Zillow is simply inaccurate, so you’ll want an accurate and reliable MLS site for viewing homes in the Sequim area even if you use multiple MLS sites like Zillow and Realtor.com. I recommend Sequim4Sale.com.
Once you’re ready to make an offer, use the right purchase and sale agreement and the right addendums with the contingencies and language you need to properly do your due diligence. You need to get the inspections done, but you also need a back door to terminate your contract if necessary.
I hope this Buyer Timeline video is helpful. You know how to reach me if you have questions.
