Finding the one
Bidding Process & making an offer
Work with your realtor to make a competitive offer and don't be suprised to receive counter offers. Make sure not to stretch your financial limits or give up important protections as you enter the option period.
Offer Acceptance / Option Period
In Texas, you have 10 day option period after offer acceptance for a qualified home inspector to evaluate the condition of the house. This protects you from buying a home with hidden problems.
This is also the time to contact your lender for final loan approval.
