Making an Offer Checklist
Before you apply for a loan, you must first submit an offer to purchase a home and the seller must accept it. You then have a ratified sales contract. Your mortgage loan amount will be based on the purchase price of the home outlined in your ratified sales contract.
We provide this checklist to facilitate the process. You should make sure to discuss each step with your real estate sales professional and seek further guidance as needed.
We suggest you print this worksheet, then check off each item after you've reviewed the steps.
Step 1: Prepare to make an offer
Revisit the neighborhood at various times of day and night
Talk with prospective neighbors to discuss what it's like to live in the area
Look at the home more critically to discover any overlooked flaws or attributes
Market value of home
Step 2: Review pre-qualification
Step 3: Make an offer
Submit purchase and sale agreement to real estate agent. This document includes:
Description of property
Length of time offer is valid
Any other requirements based on advice from your real estate sales professional
Submit earnest money to show seller you are serious about your offer. Check with your real estate sales professional regarding a customary amount of your "good-faith" payment. (No set amount is required.)
Step 4: Seller response
Sell a Home and Save up to 1%
