Your offer on your Sacramento Home has been accepted! Now what? Let’s find out now!

Getting an offer accepted on the home of your dreams is an exciting event but the fun is just starting. What does the whole process look like and what should you expect? A good realtor will be there to guide you through the process from start to finish. We are giving you the short version here but you can find out more by reading our “Guide to a Successful closing

OK your offer is accepted – what’s next? Working under the premise you are already pre-approved by a lender, the first step is to get your deposit in. You have 3 business days to make this happen. The deposit can be made by personal or cashier’s check or it can be wired. The escrow company won’t take cash.

With the time clock ticking and depending on what was agreed to in the contract its time for you, your agent and your lender to get busy.

Even though you are pre-approved your lender is going to want updated financials including pay stubs and checking statement. Whenever your lender makes a request get them the information that same day. Don’t let any delays be because you held up the process.

While this is happening your Realtor will discuss what types of inspections you may want. Again, depending on what was negotiated these will be out of pocket buyer expenses. Typical inspections include a whole house inspection, a pest inspection to determine if you have termites or excessive dry rot. If the house is older we suggest a sewer inspection. If it has a chimney it’s a good idea to get the chimney inspected and the roof inspected as well.

The seller will be delivering the sellers disclosures to you. The seller is legally obligated to disclose any and everything they know about the property including repairs that have been completed, death on the property within the past 3 years and anything that would be important for you the buyer to be aware of.

With reports and disclosures in hand it’s time to discuss a request for repairs if any with your agent. Our thoughts are no house is perfect. You are buying a used home and every home has its issues. If it is a health and safety issue like lack of ground fault circuit interrupters in the kitchen or baths, or a leaky roof or any other item that could damage or put at risk you or the structure, those are the items we suggest asking the seller to fix. Things like ugly paint or nasty carpet, those are cosmetic and should be dealt with on your dime. The seller is not obligated to make any repairs so be mindful of that in what you ask for. Typically in a buyers market a seller will agree to more repairs than you would in a sellers market. Your Realtor should guide you through this part.

While you are completing the inspections the lender will order the appraisal. Again this is an out of pocket buyer expense. Whether you buy the house or not the appraiser has to be paid. If the property appraises for less than your offer you can ask the seller to reduce the price. If they don’t and you don’t or wont bring in the cash difference you may cancel and not lose your deposit.

Repairs if any are completed or a seller credit given, the appraisal is complete and at value and the lender has given full underwriting approval for the loan. Now it’s time for the lender to order the loan docs and for you to sign at the escrow company. Once loan docs are signed the loan package is sent back to the lender for final review, the loan is funded and the deed with you as the new owner is recorded at the county. This can take anywhere from the same day to 2-3 days depending on your lender.

With the deed recorded you are now officially a homeowner – Congratulations! Your Realtor will deliver you the leys and depending on what was negotiated you can start moving in right away

Writing Winning offers

Hi Im Mike with the Rigley Realty Group. Whether buying or selling, for the best real estate information subscribe to our channel and hit the bell to be notified when we post a new video every Wednesday

Are you missing out in the multiple offer game? Want to know how to write a winning offer? Find out now…

Losing out on the home of your dreams is crushing. You’ve looked and looked but keep getting beat out on the home of your choice. Before throwing in the towel, check out these tips that help our clients get their offers accepted more times than not when they follow our advice.

Writing a winning offer is as much about terms as it is price. Not all offers are equal even if the offered price is exactly the same. The first step in writing that winning offer is to find out as much as possible what is most important to the seller. Is it simply the highest net? Or maybe they need time to move. What about how quickly they want to close. Faster is not always better. Here is where an experienced agent is going to make or break the deal. An experienced agent will leverage their relationships with other agents to find out as much as possible of what the seller needs before making suggestions to you on how to structure the loan.

Once we know what is important to the seller, we structure the offer to best meet the needs of the seller while not giving away the farm so to speak. It’s a balancing act of protecting your rights as a buyer and getting you the best deal possible but not losing out on the home. This is a balancing act that has to be walked very carefully. Representing you as the buyer we have a fiduciary duty to work in your best interests always.

Items to consider when writing that winning offer include but are not limited to highest offered price, shorter contingency periods, larger deposit, quicker close if the seller wants to close quickly, even possibly a free rent back or delayed date of possession.

Keep in mind when it comes to the offered price it is the net amount the seller should be focusing on. A way to increase the seller’s net proceeds is to pay some of the sellers closing costs such as splitting or paying 100% of the owners title insurance, splitting or paying 100% of the escrow fee. Not asking for a home warranty or offering to pay the city or county transfer fee. Yes, these are all additional costs to you BUT it does put your offer in a better position when going against other offers.

Key to this process is having an agent with a good reputation in the real estate community who is willing to leverage their relationships with other agents, a stronger pre-approval letter from a reputable direct lender and to be flexible. While this should be strictly a financial decision we know it to be as much emotional as financial.

Keep in mind, no matter what, you should never pay more for the home than you are comfortable with and ALL the financial decisions are yours. We will coach counsel and suggest but at the end of the day, you are the boss.

As you can see there is no hard and fast rule to getting an offer accepted. It chances on a case by case basis. This is why it is so very important to have the right agent working for you.

What is the Home Buying Process in Sacramento?

What is the Sacramento Home Buying Process

Hi I’m Mike with the Rigley Realty Group. Whether buying or selling, for the best real estate information subscribe to our channel and hit the bell to be notified when we post a new video every Wednesday

Thinking about buying a home in Sacramento? Let Jennifer and me take you through the process now.

Buying a home can be a daunting task for the novice and even seasoned home buyer. Buying a home is usually the largest financial investment a person will ever make. Plus buying a home is way more than a place to live. It’s your home. It’s the place where family and friends gather. It’s where you build memories. Let’s just make sure those memories of buying your home are all good.

So let’s start. The first step in buying a home is to get pre-approved with a lender. Without the loan in place you don’t even know if you can buy the home of your dreams. Speak with a reputable lender. They will be able to tell you how much you can borrow and if there are credit issues, what you need to do to clean them up. See our video on the difference between pre-approved and pre-qualified for a better understanding of the process. A good lender will also talk to you about how much down payment you will need, what you closing costs are and most importantly what your payment will be. Most people will qualify for a larger house payment than they are comfortable with.

Next Step- Find a good Realtor. Statistically buyers work with the first Realtor they meet. How crazy is that? The right Realtor is going to do way more than unlock doors and send you listings to review. The right Realtor will play a very important part in guiding you through the process. Take time to interview several agents before committing to one. Watch our video on what questions to ask your Realtor to find out more.

OK – You’ve gotten pre-approved, you have a great Realtor. Now what? Now’s the time to sit down with your Realtor and discuss your wants and needs. In over 15 years I’ve never seen the perfect house so there is always some give and take. Armed with this information your Realtor will be able to start the search for the home that will best fit your needs and cover as many of your wants as possible. While you can look at the public websites like Zillow and Realtor.com, a good agent will cut through all the noise for you and, as in our case, set you up on a back-stage pass to the MLS, allowing you to get all the latest properties frequently before they hit the public sites. Ask us how…

Now it’s time to start looking at homes. Your Realtor will make the appointments and schedule a tour of the homes that best fit your criteria. Be sure to take notes as you go and eliminate those homes that are just not going to work. You may have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find “the one”. What we know from our experience is that when you find the right house you will know it the minute you step inside. It’s crazy but 9 times out of 10 this is the case.

You’ve now found the right house for you. What’s next? Next is to actually write the offer. Again, this is where a great Realtor is going to be worth their weight in gold. Your offer will vastly depend on what kind of market you are in – buyers, sellers or neutral. It will depend on the price of the property and the comparable sales in the area. It will depend on if you need assistance with your closing costs or not.

Based on the offer you write one of three things will happen. The seller will accept it, reject it or counter it. If accepted awesome you are now in contract. If rejected your Realtor will find out why and use it as a learning tool for the next offer. If countered you and your Realtor will sit down and decide how you want to respond. See our video on writing winning offers for more information.

Once your offer is accepted you are now officially in contract or escrow as it is frequently called. In the California contract, unless you agreed to something else you have three contingencies or ways to cancel the agreement without jeopardizing your deposit. These are the inspection, appraisal and loan contingency. We talk more in depth on these three items in our video The Escrow Process.

With your contingencies removed, loan approved and any agreed upon repairs completed you are ready to sign your loan documents. Either your lender, Realtor or both will meet you at the escrow company offices to assist in your signing the loan documents. With the loan docs signed they are processed, the loan is funded and the deed is sent to the county for recording you as the new owner. Its what we mean when you get the call that we are on record. Depending on your lender, this can take as little as the same day and as much as a day or two and the recording never happens on a weekend or holiday in California.

Once on record the home is official yours and, depending on what was negotiated, you can move right in. Your Realtor will meet you at the property and deliver the keys to you. Congratulations you are now a home owner!

Sacramento County Real Estate Market Update – July 2018

Sacramento County Real Estate Market Update – July 2018

What’s the latest in the Sacramento County Real Estate Market?

Hi Im Mike with the Rigley Realty Group at exp Realty. Whether buying or selling, for the best real estate information subscribe to my channel and hit the bell to be notified when we post a new video every Wednesday

Click on the Picture for complete details

As the summer quickly comes to a close we can see the Real Estate market trend shift we spoke of last month coming to fruition. Is it a season shift or a sign of things to come? It takes three data points to establish a trend and I’m not so sure we have seen those yet. Stay Tuned for more insight on this market and what it means to you.

Where is the Housing Market Headed?

Reporting the data is one thing. Interpreting it is a completely different skill set. We like to think we do a lot more than report the numbers. It’s not the numbers that count as much as what they mean to you if you are buying or selling during this time. We know there is a pronounced shift in the market but is it seasonal or a trend? Here’s what the data tells us…

In Sacramento County the number of homes sold typically peak in June and seasonally decline through January. This year home sales peaked in May, a month early and if the annual trends repeat themselves we can expect declining sales though the end of the year. While there are more homes for sale, inventory remains at less than 2 months – mathematically a sellers’ market ONLY if buyers are still buying. Even with the supposed “sellers’ market” we are seeing buyers able to negotiate prices and repairs that would have been unheard of even 3 months ago. Prices are holding steady in a neutral pattern but the days of crazy bidding wars are on hold through the end of the year. There are 7.4% more homes for sale today than a month ago and 21.6% more homes for sale than a year ago. 

So, what’s it all mean?

If selling – price your home right and be ready to make adjustments as needed. If buying, you have more leverage from now through the end of the year. Use it wisely and know that not all sellers are going to be willing to negotiate. Our experience is buyers shift to a changing market far faster than sellers do.

If you are thinking about selling in the next 12 months NOW is the time to call us.

The better prepared your home is before it hits the market the quicker it will sell and sell for more. Call for a Strategic Marketing Consultation and we’ll show you specifically how we get more for your home in less time. We’ll also talk about any repairs and improvements that you can make to maximize your return. More importantly, we’ll tell you what changes NOT to make saving you both time and money. If you are thinking about selling in the next 12 months, call us today for your Strategic Marketing Consultation. We will cover your goals and our unique approach to getting you the most amount of money in the shortest number of days with the fewest hassles

If you are thinking about Buying in the next 6 months NOW is the time to call us.

Again preparation is the key. Not only will we help you get pre-qualified for a loan so when we find that perfect home for you, you won’t miss out, we also show you our time tested home buying strategy that gets our buyers offers accepted 98.7% of the time, even when those offers are not the highest offer.
