You are provided with commission amounts and splits when the order is opened so that we can seamlessly include them in the lender’s estimates.
With a pre-approval letter in hand and price range determined, the buyer is now ready to shop for a home with their realtor.
The buyers found a home! Terms of the offer, seller credit, closing date, etc. are now discussed to ensure the buyer is comfortable with everything before proceeding and an earnest money check is written.
Once the offer is accepted, a home inspection is completed (paid for by the buyer) and any requests for repairs and/or credits are negotiated. Once negotiations are complete, loan terms are finalized and the rate is locked.
With all the details finalized, an appraisal is ordered by the lender (charged to the buyer) while a title report and escrow are also ordered. Now is the time for the buyer to shop for homeowners insurance.
The purchase contract, appraisal, title, insurance, and any remaining loan conditions are now sent to underwriting for review.
After the required three-day review period and under-writing ‘clears’ all prior conditions, the closing disclosure will be sent. The loan docs are drawn and delivered to escrow.
The settlement statement is prepared by escrow and discloses all the final numbers including the buyer’s cash due for closing. Once completed, escrow contacts the buyer with final figures and schedules closing.
With everything in order, it is time for the buyer to sign the loan/title docs at the title company, confirm the title company’s wiring instructions, and provide the funds for closing.
The signed loan docs are then returned to the lender for final review. After a final verbal verification of employment for the buyer is completed, all funding conditions are reviewed and cleared for closing.
Once cleared, the lender wires funds to escrow, escrow pays all the parties listed on the settlement statement, and records documents are sent to the county clerk.
