Buy a Home
Your sales agent can submit a purchase contract on your behalf once you've found the perfect house and are ready to make an offer. Most state-mandated contracts give you a limited time to inspect the house, so if there are severe maintenance issues, you may be allowed to cancel the contract within that time frame. We recommend that you hire a professional home inspector to complete this vital work. If the repair items are within your comfort zone, your sales agent can help you negotiate repair prices with the home seller. The house is officially under contract if you reach an agreement with the seller.
