Las Vegas Home Buyers: Be Responsible

Image: Michal Marcol /
Buying a home is exciting. Often buyers will take much time reviewing listings and viewing homes.  That is the fun part.

However, once the offer documents come out buyers often sit back and get that "I'm just along for the ride" look.

Not a good idea.  

Buyers need to take responsibility for their home purchase.

This means:
  • reading all offer, counter offer, and addendum documents (or get a real estate attorney to review);
  • attending the home inspection (if possible) and asking the inspector questions;
  • reviewing the inspection report and asking for estimates or additional inspections if wanted;
  • reviewing all lender documentation and keeping in contact with lender;
  • reviewing all documents in general that are involved in the transaction;
  • attending the final walk through.
Buyers need to be active participants in the home purchase. The transaction rests in the buyer's hands, not the real estate agent, lender, or title officer.  Buyers need to speak up and ask questions.
