Can someone please explain the process of buying?
 
I am now ready to make an offer on a resale contract. I know that ROFR can take up to 30 days. What I would like to know is once an offer is accepted do I have to pay a down payment and if so how much of a percentage? Also can the down payment be paid with a credit card? Then when is the total amount due? I will have to transfer some money so I want to make sure all my ducks are in a row before I get started! I know the total has to be paid with a certified check, but is there any other options? Thanks for all the info provided here :)

Each broker works differently, so I would talk to your broker about their specific procedures. But a generic answer is that you pay about $1,000 as a deposit using a credit card and the balance is due when the contracts are signed after passing ROFR. Typical payment methods are certified check or wire transfer.

Good luck with your purchase! :)

It may be different with diff realtors. I used Fidelity & first American title. After our offer was accepted we put $1000 deposit on a cc. You could also send a personal check. After it passes ROFR, title co waits for the estoppel and creates the closing docs, ours took about a week after passing ROFR. When we got closing docs, we could email or overnight our contract. And the balance is due in either a certified check or wire. Hope that helps.

The whole process takes about 8-10 weeks.

Thanks it does help a lot! I didn't think the total amount would be due until after contracts were signed and ROFR had been passed, but wanted confirmation. Thanks again!
