4 Steps to the Buying Process
Our primary goal is to find you your perfect property. Our job assisting you with buying property on Roatan is not done until we find what you are looking for or close to it. If it can’t be found we will suggest other options such as building your dream holiday home, researching income property or search any of our non-MLS properties.
We will work for you to get the best possible offer for the property chosen. Basically, the submitting of an offer is the conversation starter.
When a purchase price is agreed upon the buyer will work on any contingencies we have written into the contract such as clear property title search, home inspection, title transfer, dock deed etc. When this step is completed 10% of the purchase price must be made within 72 hours to a predetermined escrow account. If no contingencies are written into the sales contract the earnest deposit will be made within a 7 day time period
On the closing date, you and the seller will sign all documents. If you are unable to attend in person, your attorney can represent you or your real estate broker can obtain a POA to represent you. Signing documents will occur when the seller receives money owed and the attorney is paid in full.
The property recording process can take 4 -6 months long. So patience is needed at this time. Once the recording of properties has occurred you will receive your property deed or your stock certificate for your corporation.
