You accepted a buyer’s offer on your home? Congratulations! Now put down the champagne. There’s work to be done. Lots of work, if you want the deal to close.

Many sellers are surprised when twists and turns occur during their transactions. The buyer’s inspector may uncover serious problems you didn’t know existed—or maybe not-so-serious problems that still put a wrinkle in the process. The buyer could have difficulty getting financing or might just get cold feet. Those examples barely scratch the surface.

Thankfully, when you hire a Texas REALTOR®, you have a professional working for you who knows how to deal with all the sticky situations that may arise. Texas REALTORS® understand how to get from an accepted contract to a done deal. Then it will be time to pop the cork on that champagne.
