STEPS: 1. Draw up a contract or use local relator’s contract with appropriate language struck out or added. 2. Take contract and earnest deposit or down money or whatever you negotiate, to your title company and have them prepare the rest, including getting any survey, appraisal, title search etc. 3. Make sure any contingencies in the contract are met such as inspections, loan qualification letters ect. 4. Set closing date in accordance with the contract. 5. Have title company fax you a copy of the HUD-1 Closing Statement, the day before closing to be able to correct any errors. 6. Go to closing, sign papers and pick up your proceeds check. These are the basics, if you have any particular questions, ask them.
