Once the property is under contract the following processes occur: The agents forward all sales documents to the escrow team to manage the paperwork through closing. If they wish, the Jacksons may order an inspection of the home they are purchasing. The sellers and the Jacksons negotiate repairs to be completed. After the sellers complete the necessary repairs, the lender orders an appraisal to verify the value of the loan. The Jacksons perform a final walkthrough of the home prior to signing and closing.
