The real estate transaction from contract to closing includes:
At each of these junctures, the contract can be terminated if the "product" turns out to be not as advertised, unless an agreement to rectify issues can be reached between the buyer and seller. Navigating these negotiations is one important reason to hire a REALTOR®. For most people, a home is their biggest investment - why wouldn't you use a professional?
For many transactions, the seller and the buyer are each represented by their own agent advocate. Sometimes, the deal can be handled for both parties by a Transaction Broker, who is a neutral facilitator. The agents involved split a commission, which is typically a percentage of the sales price. In Colorado, the commission is almost always paid by the seller.
Speaking to a lender to discuss your financial situation and what you can afford is an important first step to finding your new home. In fact, most sellers won't even consider an offer from a buyer who has not yet had this conversation and can provide a pre-qualification letter.
