Your Referrals make a difference to help fight kids'cancer

We are on a mission to raise $2,500 this year! This August, TwoMoveYou Guaranteed Real Estate Team is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids’ cancer!

Why?
Because right now, over 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer every year, and it’s the biggest killer of children from disease in Canada.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So we are raising funds through this challenge to help these kids and support Sick Kids Foundation to allow them to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support TwoMoveYou in one or more of the following ways…

1. Refer TwoMoveYou Real Estate, and a donation will be made toward SickKids Foundation! https://lnkd.in/eCi_yDA

2. Join our team… Bike as many kilometers in August that you can, and help us fundraise for the cause! https://lnkd.in/eNbwZCM

Earnest Money Deposit

Earnest Money Deposit

Prospective new home owners can often become confused by the strange-sounding terms used throughout the process of looking at homes, finding one they love, and wanting to actually buy that house. There are a lot of steps involved from looking to moving in. One of those steps at the decision-making stage is the earnest money deposit.

The Earnest Money Deposit

The earnest money deposit is important because it tells the seller of the house that you are a committed buyer with the money to go ahead with the sale.

Without the earnest money deposit, there would be nothing to stop a prospective buyer from making offers on many homes, which would result in them being taken off the market until the buyer decided which one they liked best – leaving the other sellers in the lurch. These days, most sellers insist on having a deposit of some kind as a part of accepting your offer.

The Earnest Money Will Be Part of Your Down Payment and Closing Costs

Many people worry that this is an additional cost on top of all the other financial obligations involved in buying a home. The truth is that the money will go towards the down payment and/or closing costs when the sale goes through.

What If I Change My Mind?

The only exception to getting all your money applied towards the sale is if it does not go through. If you change your mind, for example, there will usually be a fee involved, with a small percentage of the money forfeited.

On the other hand, if you want to back out of the sale because the house does not pass the inspection and/or there will be too long a wait for the seller to redress the issues, you should not forfeit any money. Sometimes the seller might also discover that for various reasons, they are not allowed to sell the home. This could be because they are in foreclosure, have a tax lien on the house, or are not aware they are in a flood zone and need to follow certain rules and regulations when selling.

How Much Earnest Money Will Be Required?

In general, it will be around 1% to 2% of the agreed-upon price for the home. You should have this money available before making a firm offer. If it is a lively market, they may ask for 3%, but they might also be willing to haggle on the price if they can be assured of a large down payment and quick sale.

What Happens to the Deposit?

Once you have signed the purchase agreement, the money will usually be put in an escrow account by the realtor, or title holder if you are opting for a foreclosed property. Never give the money directly to the seller. You should of course use only a reputable realtor and be clear about how they will hold the money.

Once the sale reaches the final stages, the money will be released from escrow and applied to your down payment for the house.

What to Do to Get Your Money Back

If the deal falls through, a small cancellation fee might be charged, especially if you change your mind.

The rest of the amount in escrow will be handled based on what is stated in the purchase agreement, so make sure there is a clause about this in the agreement.

The agreement should also state certain contingencies. For example, sometimes even pre-approved customers actually get declined for a mortgage in the end. In this case, you should be able to recover 100% of the earnest money deposit. Issues with the seller not being able to sell, or the home inspection, should also be stated in the clause to ensure you get back you full deposit.

You Made an Offer – What Now?

You Made an Offer – What Now?

You’ve found the home of your dreams, and made an offer. What happens next? Quite a few things, is the answer, before you get the keys to your new home.

The offer may seem like the end of the process, but it’s actually just the beginning of the really important things you need to take care of.

1. Give Your Earnest Money Deposit

Most house sales will include an earnest money deposit to show you are serious about your offer. The deposit will be accepted by the realtor and put into an escrow account. It will count towards your down payment and/or closing fees. It will usually be 1% to 3% of the asking price for the house.

2. Apply for Your Mortgage

Ideally, you’ve been pre-approved with a lender, but now you need to finalize terms and get ready to sign on the dotted line. This is a crucial step, because even though you have been pre-approved, you still might not be able to get a mortgage, or one with the favorable terms you might have hoped for. You credit score or employment situation might have changed, or the bank’s lending policy.

But it’s not the end of the world. You’ll have to start again, but you do have all the paperwork organized and you can compare terms.

3. Get the Home Appraised and Inspected

The appraisal will assess whether or not the price is in line with what the house is worth. No mortgage lender will give you a loan for more than the house is worth.

The inspection will assess whether the house is in good repair, or whether there might be issues that need to be fixed by the seller before the sale can go through.

Ask your realtor for the names of two or three reliable home inspectors and get an appointment for them to inspect the property. They will produce a detailed report on their findings.

If the house inspection is not perfect, in most cases the seller will have the “right to cure” the issue – that is, time to fix things so the sale does not fall through completely. However, this can take some time and you need to be certain all the repairs are carried out before completing the deal.

If you want to take them on yourself, then you should be able to reduce your offer because you will be paying for the repairs. Be sure your realtor attends the inspection and renegotiates based on what has been found.

4. Get Your Down Payment and Closing Costs Ready

Make sure the funds you need are both accessible. For example, if you plan to take out a loan from your 401k as a deposit, be sure to have the money in an easy-to-access savings account. If you plan to sell stocks and shares, don’t wait. Keep all your paperwork to show you have the money ready.

In terms of the closing costs, be clear about what is involved, like title and deed fees, legal fees and so on. Your realtor should be able to give you guidance on what to expect. Don’t forget; your earnest money can go towards the costs.

5. Get Homeowner’s Insurance

This might be included with your mortgage, or you may have to shop around.

6. Do a Final Walk-Through

You can do this 48 hours before closing, just to make sure you are happy with any work that has been done. Now is the time to speak up. After the sale will be too late.

7. Close the Deal

You and your realtor will be there to sign all of the official documents for your mortgage and for the home. Bring photo ID and a cashier’s check for the final amount you have been told you will need.

If you are buying the house with your spouse or partner, they will need to be there with photo ID as well. Pay the money, and get the keys to your new home.
