Coldwell Banker agents share their answers to very important questions about the steps after the offer: the home inspection & the appraisal.

Your offer has been accepted, but there are a few more steps before the house is yours. The appraisal and the home inspection are two steps that are extremely important in making sure you’re protected during the home buying process.

A real estate professional is a great resource throughout the journey of buying or selling a home, so we asked Coldwell Banker agents to share their answers to these very important questions below.
