Facing each issue that arises is important if buyers and sellers want to keep a transaction on track. An experienced Highlands NC REALTOR will be invaluable when it comes to navigating a home sale with an eye on arriving at the closing table.

Many issues arise

A contract to purchase a Highlands NC home for sale will include a variety of contingencies. One of these contingencies should be an inspection contingency. Every inspection, no matter how perfect a house appears, will reveal issues. However, this does not mean that the issues will be big issues. An inspection will lead to further negotiation which can include repairs or money at closing for such repairs. While surprises may occur, they can usually be resolved when addressed.

Financial stress

Many Highlands NC real estate contracts will include a finance contingency, which can derail a sale when a buyer does not qualify for a loan.

An appraisal is an important part of a purchase and when it comes in lower than the contracted price a lender will want to reduce the loan amount. An issue with the title can also arise. When a title is not clear there are things that must be worked out.

An experienced Highlands NC REALTOR will continue to negotiate to ensure that all conflicts are addressed. When resolution is not possible it can mean the end of a real estate transaction.
