You and the Seller Must Agree
Buying a home does not occur in a vacuum, involving only the buyer and the seller. There are all kinds of people and services involved behind the scenes to help make it happen. These include escrow and title services, home inspectors, pest inspectors and others. Since some of these services affect both the buyer and the seller, there will have to be an agreement on which companies you will use for them. When you make your offer, you should request your favorites for these services. If you are unfamiliar with these service providers, you can get recommendations from your agent.
