FIRST TIME HELP!I feel like my real estate agent is not good at explaining the steps for the home buying process! I am a first time home buyer and have decided to put an offer on a house. The sellers agent asked for the offer in writing and my agent is rushing me to send the offer in! Do I need my lawyer to approve the written offer? When do I owe my downpayment? When should I have my engineer check the property- I feel so lost and don't want to lost this potential house!October 17 2013 - US0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
