Step 1: The seller selects a Realtor.
Step 2: The seller will prepare the house for buyer tours
Step 3: Once the seller has received an offer from a potential buyer along with their pre-qualification letter, proof of funds and a copy of their good faith deposit. We provide the seller with a net sheet to see what amount they will net based on the buyer's offering price, terms and commissions.
Step 4: The seller will elect to accept or counter-offer the offers.

Step 7: Day 17 - We will request that the buyer remove all of their contingencies in writing.
Step 8: Near the close of escrow the buyer's loan documents arrive at escrow. The buyers are contacted to setup a signing.
Step 9: The buyers & lender will wire their funds to escrow and the following day, not including weekends and Holidays, escrow will close.
