We offer a three-phase service, a la carte, for owners who elect to sell a single family residence or condominium to a buyer with whom they have been informally discussing price/terms.

For those considering FSBO, and for those already on Craig's List or Zillow ..... the FSBO decision.

Phase 1 ..... OFFER & ACCEPTANCE

Phase 1 covers transaction activity from inception to opening of escrow ..... including providing a current tax record and MLS data, as requested; preparation (unless provided by buyer) and review of the purchase contract, counter offers, addenda; referral to a Title Insurance company for escrow services and title insurance coverage; review of its Preliminary Title Report; confirmation of buyers' initial deposit; review of buyers' preapproval; verification of buyers' funds to close; opening of an escrow.


Phase 2 covers transaction activity dealing with seller disclosures - both contractual and statutory - and buyer inspections; compliance with point-of-sale ordinances; verification of buyers' supplemental deposit; removal of the inspections contingency.

Phase 3 ..... FINANCING & ESCROW

Phase 3 covers transaction activity from the opening of escrow, running parallel to Phase 3, to closing of escrow ..... including coordination with buyer's mortgage lender or broker; coordinating the appraisal; removal of the financing and appraisal contingencies; ordering payoff demands; coordinating with escrow for estimated closing statements and signing of documents by sellers and by buyers; coordinating transfer of title, possession, utilities.
