With Daniel and Mark’s backgrounds in law, they have the ability to know what the contract doesn’t say, how it can be altered and what risks can be managed; bringing each buyer peace of mind in every transaction.

The professional and bespoke services don’t stop after closing. Each CREM Group client has access to vetted, experienced and diligent vendors from cleaning crews to legal services. Each client will have unlimited access to these vendors and their beneficial pricing.

Agent Consultation

The first crucial step in the purchasing process is finding the right, qualified agent to guide you through a successful transaction. Purchasing a home is a big investment with many legal and financial ramifications, so you should not choose an agent merely on “personal connection” or because that agent is “nice,” without further investigation. Just like lawyers and

Pre-Approval

Getting pre-approved by a local lender is one of the first things you should do for many reasons. In Silicon Valley, a pre-approval letter is a prerequisite for serious consideration of your offer. Knowing the available loan amount will aid in determining how much you intend to spend on your home and which neighborhoods to consider.

Offer Submission

Next, our agent will work with you to draft an offer. Our agent will speak with the listing agent ahead of time to ascertain the seller’s desires and to see if you can offer any items of value to the seller with little cost to you. This shows your desire to work with the seller and can optimize the situation for both you and the seller. Regarding what price to offer, our agent will provide you with a comparable market analysis, showing the selling price of recent comparable properties and what the market value is of the current property. Additionally, our agent will update you on the interest level of other parties and whether you may be in a multiple-offer situation.

Offer Acceptance, Counter or Rejection

Once the offer has been submitted, three things can happen: 1. It’s accepted, 2. It’s rejected or 3. It’s countered. In a competitive market, if the offering price is not near market value, Daniel and Mark’s utilize their legal backgrounds during the negotiation and offer submission process thus providing tangible savings for their clients throughout the process.

Escrow Process

After the parties formed a contractual agreement, the escrow period begins. An escrow company is a neutral third party that acts as an intermediary between the buyer and seller. In Northern California, title companies handle both the title and escrow duties of the same transaction. The most important job of the escrow company is to properly take the buyer’s money in exchange for the seller’s property. An average escrow period is 30 days, with the vast majority ranging from 15-45 days.

Upon recording, we are happy to bring you the keys to your new home and any additional information on items that the seller included in the sale. WELCOME HOME!!

The Escrow Process

Bringing clarity to an otherwise ambiguous process.

Week

Disclosures and Inspections

Once escrow is opened, the buyer will normally deposit their earnest money (3% of the purchase price) within the first 3 days. During this first week, disclosures and inspections will take priority.

Seller Disclosures – Most seller disclosures are due to the buyer within 7 days. These disclosures normally provide a host of information including a description of the properties current condition, any material defects known and past issues that may have occurred. A preliminary title report is also sent over for review.

Inspections – Four main inspections are typically required.

  • Physical Home Inspection – Ordered and paid for by the buyer, the home inspector conducts a phisclay inspection of the property
  • Termite/Pest Inspection
  • Lender Appraisal Inspection
  • Agent Visual inspection

Testimonials

“I came to The CREM Group as a nubie, knowing nothing about how the real estate purchases worked.  After all was said and done, I left with confidence in the whole process. Without their patient guidance, I would have been lost forever.  They helped me find a reliable lender and several other resources that I have used since buying my house.  I can’t tell you how helpful and professional this team was and continues to be. Thanks guys!”

Natia L.

Daniel did an amazing job walking me through the home buying process for the first time. Daniel consistently delivered quality service throughout the whole process. He answered all of my questions and provided everything I needed in order to help me find and purchase the perfect home. In addition, I felt secure knowing that he has both a real estate background and a legal background. I would highly recommend him to others with no hesitation!

Erin

Working with Mark and Daniel has been such a pleasant experience. Not only were they patient and understanding but they are incredibly smart and creative when it comes to real estate. They did such an impressive job finding me an off-market property so that I didn’t have to compete with others in this crazy market. Thank you guys for making this process so smooth and comfortable for my family and me.

Dave

We worked with Daniel and Mark and they were delightful and efficient. My wife and I were pretty amazed by the way they saved our deal from falling through several times (through no fault of their own). They were both incredibly detail oriented, probably due to their attorney background, and worked tirelessly to get us what we wanted. We are so appreciative to have had them on our side!
