the home buying process here are some steps on what to expect. Step 1

range you will be looking at.

Any Earnest Money you have agreed to needs to be deposited to the Escrow
account. Make sure you write the escrow number on the check if you are
not doing a wire transfer.
If there is a Physical Contingency Period you can inspect the
property during this time. Any repairs the seller agrees to have
completed should be completed prior to close of escrow unless agreed upon
Your lender is working from the 1st day of acceptance to get
your appraisal ordered and your loan file ready
for underwriting to give a formal approval of your loan. ( If Loan is

The title company will collect all the necessary documents needed
from all parties. (Seller(s), Buyer(s), Lender, and agents).
