On YELLOW, buyers are only able to visit homes near or below their preapproval level, at a threshold set by the seller.

For example, say a seller lists their home for $300,000. They can specify that they only want buyers preapproved for $270,000 or more to visit their home.

It's easy to verify your financing with YELLOW - just upload or send your preapproval document to YELLOW and you're set!

Close

We'll walk with you through the closing process.

Your offer was accepted – that's great news! But now things get a little more complicated.

Depending on your source of funding, it could take several weeks before you are able to close and you'll have a lot of work to do in the meantime. We've put together a guide for what to expect in the closing process, which can be found in our RESOURCES section.






Is a real estate agent worth the cost?

We don't think so. Because of their fees, you’re paying 6% more for the home than you should be. That's a lot of money. Unknown to most home shoppers, but it’s the title company that does the legwork of the actual purchase and the mortgage company handles the financing - not the real estate agent.
