A New Year brings new challenges, triumphs, and opprtunities. It brings a fresh start and a clean slate. It gives us a chance to sit down and figure out what we want to accomplish in 2017; for many people that includes putting down roots and buying a new home.
Whether you are a first time home-buyer (which is SO EXCITING, congrats!) or you have been through the process before, it can seem to take a lifetime to get the keys to the kingdom and move into your brand new home. To find "the one," write the offer, negotiate, schedule the home inspection, negotiate some more, deal with the appraiser, do a little more negotiating, go back and forth with the lender, and run screaming victoriously to the attorney's office to sit down at the closing table and sign the thick stack of paperwork before being handed the house keys...it takes planning, patience, persistance, and faith in your Realtor that they will keep everything on track and get you to the finish line.
These tips from a fantastic article from realtor.com should help to get you from contract to closing faster and easier so that you can enjoy your new home sooner. It's worth it.
