1.    Assemble a qualified team to work with as you negotiate the mortgage maze.

Many times, the quality of your real estate experience depends upon the professional skills of your team and how efficiently they work together to pull off all of the things they are attempting to do for you. Be sure that your team works together well. Be sure that your real estate agent and loan officer are on the same page with respect to the timing of the transaction and the many things they must do to get the transaction going in the proper direction.

2.    Have realistic expectations of the process.

Understand that usually, time is of the essence in a real estate transfer.  Usually, the  property owner has a firm time frame within which that owner has to move. Usually, their loan payoff statement has an expiration date after which the payoff interest must be recalculated. Usually, you as the buyer have a deadline by which you must be out of your existing home and must move into your Eden, Utah home. Everyone along the way of your closing journey has a place to be at a certain time, and documents which must be acted on by a certain date. Understand that most events in the closing process take a certain amount of time. It won’t all happen at once.
