Make an offer

In California, when you make an offer on a home it does not mean that the house is yours already. The offer must have something for it to be approved like the inspection and it must pass the inspection by a licensed inspector.


Once you have gotten the house that you wish to buy then you will give a counter offer. If the seller is okay with the counter offer then he can go ahead and accept but also the seller can reject the counter offer. Also, the buyer has the right to dismiss the counter offer that the seller provides.

Get the insurance
