Buyer Checklist

Below are some of the things you will need to have before submitting an offer:

  • Preapproval Letter from a Qualified Lender
  • Funds to be able to cover a deposit (1% of your purchase price)
  • A check or money order for the 1% deposit.
  • Proof of your down payment funds in the form of a bank statement with your personal information blocked out.

  • A pest inspection: (between $95-$150)
  • Any other inspection fees (costs will vary)
  • An appraisal fee (between $400-$500)
  • Home Warranty Plan (between $380-$480)
  • Re-key expenses ($175 +/-)
  • Utility Expenses
