7 Musket

You thought finding the right real estate agent,  getting pre-approved by a mortgage officer, searching through listings, riding through neighborhoods, and touring houses to find the right home was the hard part?   That’s just the beginning, but a beginning to what should be a happy ending.  Buying (and selling a home) is process.  See below for a general guide to  keep that process moving along…

Making an Offer:
1. Find a great home
2. Determine offer price
3. Determine amount you will be financing
4. Determine a closing date
5. Jen will complete the offer form for you to review and sign
6. Deposit check to listing office to bind the offer (typically $1000, it does get deposited!)
7. Pre-Approval Letter from your bank or mortgage company
8. MA Agency Disclosure Form signed at first meeting
9. A personal note to the sellers is nice touch depending on situation
Jen sends it all to the listing agent.

Negotiate.

Agree on price and terms

Sign revised contract and check gets dropped off to listing agent to deposit

Contact attorney and home inspector

Home Inspection.
*Looking for major mechanical, structural, safety, and health issues.
1. Jen can recommend trusted home inspectors or check with friends, family, co-workers
2. Must take place typically within 10 days of signed offer.
3. Attending as a buyer is important to learning how the house “works”
and hearing what deficiencies may exist and what to do about them.
4. Negotiate any issues.
Sellers can make repairs, seller can give a credit, or seller can do nothing.

Purchase and Sale Agreement (P&S)
Overriding contract to the offer in the sale of the home
Worked on and agreed upon by both the buyers’ and seller’s attorney
Make additional P&S deposit – bank check to listing company

Appraisal.
Ordered by your mortgage company.  Paid for by you.

Completing Mortgage File.
Submit anything & everything your mortgage company asks for,
when they ask for it,
and no matter how many times they ask for it 

Mortgage Commitment.
Your loan along with the property you are purchasing have been approved by the bank
You likely will still have a few conditions on your to-do list – make sure “to do” them

Clear to Close from mortgage company (nothing left on your mortgage to-do list)
Closing Disclosure issued and three days later… Closing!!

Then guess what? You’re Home!

Always a pleasure to be of any assistance to you or anyone you know who is thinking about buying or selling a home. I love to work hard for my clients and your referrals throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Why own a home?

Are you thinking it is time to make the move into to homeownership?
Helping buyers purchase the right home is what I do.

Not sure where to start?  First Time Home Buyers are one of my specialties.  I have the patience, knowledge, and the right team of professionals to guide you through the entire process.  I surround myself with professionals who understand that as a First Time Home Buyer you are going to have questions, you are going to be getting advice (good and bad) from family and friends,  and that you aren’t even going to know enough about some parts of the transaction to know you should be asking questions.  That is when we make the biggest difference for you.  We aren’t just about numbers and deals… we are about working with people to assist them in making the best decisions they can when it comes to their upcoming homeownership move.

When you make the choice to work with me, you will also have the opportunity to work with some of the best mortgage officers, home inspectors, attorneys, and contractors around.  We have a track record of respect in the industry and success in reaching our clients’ home ownership goals.  The best part … we are ready now to work hard for you!

Always a pleasure to be of any assistance to you or anyone you know who is thinking about buying or selling a home. I love to work hard for my clients and your referrals throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Another happy ending and new beginning…

Another happy ending at 19 Sheffield St in Attleboro, Massachusetts!

SOLD Justin and GiannaI could not be happier for these first time home buyers who fell in love with this meticulously maintained three bedroom ranch in their dream neighborhood and for the sellers who are now moving on to their next chapter.   Though we all hear about the importance of on-line real estate marketing  with buyers flocking to Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, and the multitude of social media sites… I know never to underestimate the importance of sticking to the basics and the traditional avenues of marketing as well.  In this case, just a couple of signs were enough to ignite of the process of bringing together this amazing home with the perfect buyers.

Within hours of me putting up the For Sale sign in front of the house on Sheffield Street along with a directional sign at the end on North Main St,  I received a call that some very excited buyers wanted to make an appointment and see the home as soon as possible.  They had been hoping a property would come available in this neighborhood, and couldn’t believe their luck.  After searching for a home through the fast paced Spring and Summer markets, they and their agent knew not to waste time.

Calls continued to come in that Saturday as buyers and agents noted the new listing on-line.   We had multiple offers submitted by Tuesday, with the sellers accepting the winning bid that evening.

These sellers clearly took pride in their home both inside and out which absolutely shined through in the marketing photos as well as when buyers toured in person.  What a pleasure to work with them to get their home marketed and sold quickly.    And what a nice feeling to know that they are passing on this gem to such appreciative first time home buyers who will absolutely enjoy it for years to come!!

If I can ever be of any assistance to you or anyone you know thinking about buying or selling a home, please feel free to contact me by phone 508-930-5259, text , e-mail jen.mcmorran@gmail.com, or simply fill out the form below.  I love to work hard for my clients and their referrals!!

Crunchy Asian Coleslaw

This salad is a go-to favorite of ours all year long but as we finally start to string some  beautiful New England summer days together, I am starting to crave it even more!  Blue skies, warm sun, eating outside…. time to bring out some classic summer recipes and we  love our classic Asian coleslaw!!

Crunchy Asian Coleslaw

Crunchy Asian SlawOne of my favorite side dishes … great served with cod, haddock, salmon, chicken, pork, or my kids love it paired with pot stickers 🙂 For a main dish, just add chicken and serve. I always make a double batch of dressing, toast up half a bag of almonds, and cut up the whole bunch of scallions then store them in the refrigerator. I can then whip this recipe up in just minutes!

1 3-ounce packet of chicken flavor ramen noodles broken into ½ inch piece
¼ cup rice wine vinegar
¼ cup canola oil
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
¼ cup sugar
½ teaspoon ground pepper
1 ½ cups cubed cooked chicken (optional)
½ cup slivered almonds, toasted (can do in fry pan with some butter)
¼ cup chopped green onion
1 10-ounce bag of broccoli, confetti, or coleslaw (I use half broccoli slaw/half cole slaw)

In small bowl, mix rice wine vinegar, canola oil, sesame oil, sugar, pepper, and I just use half of the chicken seasoning packet from the ramen noodles. Mix ramen noodles, chicken, almonds, green onion, and coleslaw together. Add dressing. Chill 30 minutes turning occasionally. Then enjoy!!!
