Our Process towards to a Smooth Transaction

You found the property you want, made an offer, and signed the purchase agreement. Now that the shopping is done, it’s time to begin the actual process of making the purchase.

There are several steps involved:

  1. Secure Financing for The Purchase
    It’s always better to become educated about the variety of financing options available to you before you even start shopping for a property. Knowing what rates and terms are available to you helps determine what price range is best suited for your individual budget, based on your targeted monthly payment range.
  2. Secure Insurance
    In order to finance your purchase, lenders require the purchase of a homeowner’s or property insurance policy.   Many insist on the insured to pay up front for a full year of insurance. Most loans include an escrow account that is set up to automatically cover taxes and monthly insurance premium payments.  You will also need to secure title insurance.  Your Western Illinois Title Company representative can handle this for you.
