Offer Accepted, Now What?
Congratulations on the acceptance of your offer. There are a few important things to note about buying a home in North Carolina, especially if this is your first time.
Firstly, you will be required to pay a Due Diligence Fee. This fee is due and payable at this time.
Secondly, it is important to set dates and times for inspections. These inspections include a Home Inspection, Pest Inspection, HVAC Inspection, Well Inspection, and Septic Inspection. It is crucial to schedule these inspections at your earliest convenience.
If you are financing your home, ensure that your lender has a copy of the contract and all addendums. The lender will then order an appraisal.
Additionally, the bank will order a title binder to ensure that the owner is providing the correct title to you at closing.
Finally, remember to order your Home Owners Insurance to protect your investment.
