Our flat fee Berkeley FSBO service includes the following:
Initial Appointment – After the buyer and seller have agreed on the real estate transaction outline, one of them contacts us for an appointment, where we get the process started at our office in the Rockridge area of Berkeley or via conference call.
The Purchase Contract – With all parties present, we walk you through all the components of a purchase offer and translate your purchase outline into the proper legal format.
Disclosures – We make sure that the Seller is provided the most up-to-date state, county, and city forms to complete, meeting all statutory obligations.
Escrow – We open the escrow account and coordinate between the many peripheral players such as the buyer’s lender, insurance company, inspectors, seller’s existing lender and other possible lienholders or stakeholders.
Closing Documents – We setup appointments for the final, in person signing of the closing documents at the title company for both buyer and seller. Out of area parties can have their docs sent to them for signature in front of a Notary in their area.
Closing – We contact all parties to let them know the sale is complete. Sellers typically receive funds that day. Buyers can collect the house keys if they haven’t already.
Many services exist to help you market your “for sale by owner” home in Berkeley, but most of them do not provide any services during the complicated real estate closing process. We make sure your closing goes smoothly and all legal requirements for a private home sale in Berkeley are met. You benefit from the expertise of our licensed real estate broker without having to pay a full broker commission. It’s the best of both worlds.
