In the process of closing a home sale, the buyer typically hires a home inspector to come to the house and perform a visual observation. In accordance with the state’s standards, the home inspector identifies health, safety, or major mechanical issues.
Pre-approval for a mortgage and pre-approval letters are not required; however, if you want your offer to be taken seriously and to stand out from any competing bids, this little piece of paperwork can really give you the edge.
In order to protect their investment (your new house), lenders will require you to cover your home against disasters. This is to protect their investment. They want to make sure your home can be rebuilt or repaired in the event it is damaged or destroyed. Your lender should notify you of their homeowners insurance mortgage requirements prior to closing so you can get a policy in place.
The role of a title company is to verify that the title to the real estate is legitimately given to the home buyer. Essentially, they make sure that a seller has the rights to sell the property to a buyer. The title insurance company is also responsible for conducting the closing.
A home warranty refers specifically to your individual contract. For many standard home warranty plans, this may include coverage of all the parts and components of your home’s electrical, plumbing, heating and air conditioning systems as well as many other home appliances. You can also customize your plan –in addition to basic items in your home, you can add coverage for items such as a well pump, a stand-alone freezer or even a pool or spa.
I recommend these folks because they are:
- Reliable – They show up when they say they will, including for the quotation and any scheduled work thereafter.
- Careful – They pay attention to the details of the project from the very beginning, asking questions and examining all of the aspects of your project, no matter the size.
