10 Things NOT to do When Under Contract!

Once you find your dream home we need to make sure you get to move in. Here are 10 things not to do once you're under contract on your dream home.

Hi I'm Danielle Scott with Keller Williams Realty. Once you're under contract don't do any of the following.

  1. Don't change jobs, become self-employed or quit your job.

  2. Don't buy a new car, van or truck or you may end up living in it.

  3. Don't use any charge cards or let your accounts fall behind.

  4. Don't spend any money you have set aside for closing.

  5. Don't omit any debt or liabilities from your loan application.

  6. Don't buy any furniture even if the payment is deferred until after closing.

  7. Don't allow any additional inquiries on your credit except for insurance purposes.

  8. Don't make any large deposits or take out any large deposits without first checking with your lender or your agent.

  9. Don't change bank accounts.

  10. Don't co-sign on a loan for anyone no matter what and be sure to tell your lender if you already are co-signed for anyone. That debt goes against you too.

I hope this helps I want to make sure that you understand how to keep your home and actually close once we help you find it. Feel free to reach out to me if you'd like to go into more detail on any of these points.

I'm Danielle Scott, let's make it great home buying and selling day.
