1. Title insurance
As a buyer who will buy the house, make sure that the house is under the seller’s name. As many scams are going on online, trusting anyone is a big deal; the buyer will go through the same research process with the help of a buying agent. In addition, the buyer has a right to confirm that the seller has legal permission to sell the house or not.
Most people out there wanted to invest in the right direction because it’s not about some dress, but it’s about the property that needs proper consideration. As a buyer, you will also be more easy and comfortable in buying a house.

As a seller, you need to provide all the information about the house condition that should be accurate. If not, it always leads to the canceling of the deal. Let me explain to you more simply.
Sometimes sellers to attract more buyers only mention the few faulty systems of the house or, more precisely, this mistake is done for sale by the owner. Still, when it comes to home inspection, the mentioned information doesn’t match that offend the buyer and end up canceling the deal.
3. Negotiation on repairs
As mentioned above, if the information doesn’t match, it may lead to canceling. Still, very few buyers give the deal another chance because it is possible when you write the info. Maybe there is not a problem in the system. Still, it already takes time to the closing date, so if a problem arises, the buyer’s agent and seller can negotiate on it, which means the buyer may ask you to repair the system before closing or adding the credit to the list fix itself.
The appraisal is an essential step in matching the property price of the house with the property values. First, you will estimate house values to make sure about the purchase price.
The appraisal is also a detailed process and can take some time.
5. Packing and move out
After the whole deal is done and the inspection is done, when it comes to moving out, the seller will empty the space for the buyer, and the moving out process is in the buyer’s hands.
The buyer’s demands are sometimes to move as soon as possible, some give you a good amount of the time to carry so you can quickly leave the house.
6. Final walk and closing date
After the party on the seller’s side leaves the house, the buyer and his agent walk to the house to make sure it is going as planned, and there is no problem with it.
The closing date comes where you legally sign the contract and make it official.
