HOME SHOWINGS

See a home you like? Take a visit in-person or virtually.

On each home's page you'll see a "Visit Property" link where you can set an appointment to visit.





FIRST, VERIFY FINANCING

For security reasons, buyers are only able to visit homes near 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!

VIRTUAL SHOWINGS

Use the video function on your mobile device to watch as the home seller walks through their home.

With YELLOW, you're able to see guided tours of a home using the video function on your phone.

We’ll create a video portal between you and the seller, so the seller can communicate with you as they walk through your home. For privacy reasons for both parties, the seller will not be able to see the buyer.





LIVE (IN-PERSON) SHOWING


Properties on YELLOW have a digital key lockbox, where visitors enter a temporary code to get access to the door key. For security reasons, we must have your ID before visiting any property. You will receive the code before your scheduled visit.

Sellers may request YELLOW provide a guided tour of their home, where you will use the video function on your phone to connect with YELLOW as we walk you through the home.

Be comforted in knowing that 6% of the price you’re paying isn't going to real estate agent fees!




Making an offer on a home is a simple process, but it helps to have all your information ready before getting to that page. That's why we created a fillable pdf document with every question we'll ask when making an offer.

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. To help, we've created a real-time progress tracker to keep you updated throughout the closing period.

We've also 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.
