Finding a Home
Our website is a one-stop resource for finding your ideal home, featuring unlimited search capabilities and complete property profiles on tens of thousands of homes. If it's on the market, it's on our website.
At C21NM.com, you can register for My Home Planner, which allows you to set search parameters (neighborhood, price range, number of bedrooms), save a list of the homes you're interested in, compare homes side-by-side, and receive regular updates of new homes on the market that fit your criteria.
Our website provides numerous ways to find a REALTOR®. By selecting Find an Agent, you can search for an agent by name or by office. Or you can simply call us at 800-727-6888.
After finding a REALTOR®, it's a good idea to explain your goals and coordinate a plan with him or her. Touring homes with your agent and visiting open houses in the neighborhoods you are interested in is one way to familiarize yourself with the market and develop a relationship with your REALTOR®.
Make an Offer
Contact CENTURY 21 New Millennium for more information.
Once you find a home that fits your needs, your REALTOR® will draw up a Contract of Sale, or Purchase and Sale Agreement. This document defines the proposed purchase price, the terms, and the timing of the close on behalf of the buyer. The contract also serves as direction to the escrow company to close the transaction. With the help of your REALTOR®, you and the seller can then negotiate and come to terms on a mutually acceptable contract. Of course, the seller is free to accept or reject any offer, or to propose a counteroffer revising the original terms.
In addition to the price you are willing to pay, the formal offer will consist of specific deadlines, including an offer expiration date, a closing date, and possession date. When securing your offer, you must also outline the earnest money deposit amount, which you place in an escrow account or client trust account as a good faith intention to complete the transaction. Your offer is based on contingencies related to financing and inspections. If you have a house to sell, your offer may also be contingent on its sale.
During the home buying process, your REALTOR® can provide you with valuable negotiating expertise. He or she can offer you valuable market information by assessing current competition and past sales of similar homes. By preparing a Competitive Market Analysis, your REALTOR® can help you formulate an offer for your desired property. Your agent will also provide you with assistance in evaluating any counteroffers and contingencies that may arise in the process.
