ownership or are just ready to start seeing some homes- it's time to get to know an Agent.

more home options that may be "hidden" by your search parameters or are just about to
come on the market.
Century 21 Loan Application Coordination

effective partner on the lending side we can't be as effective at our job. With this in mind,
we educate our agents to help guide you through initiating the mortgage process. While we
work closely with First Savings Mortgage Corporation, we are happy to facilitate your transaction
with the dependable lender of your choice.

price & status changes to properties in your target area. Additionally, our agents will use
good old-fashioned networking to get the "inside scoop" that can enhance your search.
Century 21 Redwood Realty Expert Contract Guidance
When reviewing a contract, all eyes tend to focus on the price. Negotiating the price is certainly
the chief goal of most contracts, but price is just one aspect of a Real Estate offer. For example,
if a home is under-priced to the point where it may attract multiple offers, our agents can help
get the home off the market quickly. Similarly, if a home appears over-priced, our agents can help
craft a contract that reflects the home's is worth and with a settlement date that fits your timeline.
A number of contingencies, such as home inspection, radon/environmental, financing, appraisal and
home sale are also considered in constructing most contracts. As every situation is different, our
agents will work with you to choose the contingencies that make the most sense for each property scenario.
Century 21 Property Inspection
As soon as the ink has dried on your ratified contract offer, we go to work on lining up the necessary
inspections. Once these have been conducted we'll work with you to sort through the reports to ensure
that any concerns you may have are addressed with the seller. In a similar fashion to negotiating price,
there is an art to get seemingly unwilling Sellers to address property condition concerns and we take
pride in conveying our client's concerns in a professional and firm manner. While no property is
inherently "perfect"- we are there to ensure that you are an informed consumer.
Century 21 Property Settlements
In your sales contract you will have selected a Title Company to arrange all of the necessary paperwork.
From the time of ratification until the day of settlement, we'll work with this company to ensure that
they are able to obtain all of the necessary information, both from you and the seller. At the settlement
table, we'll be there to make sure that you feel comfortable with the "mountain of paperwork" that you'll
be required to sign. This may be one of the most important days of your life, but we'll do our best to
make sure that it isn't one of the most stressful. Informed clients are happy homeowners!
