Real Estate Terminology – Terms You Need to Know 

  • As-Is: When purchasing a home, there are some homes that are sold “as-is” or with requesting repairs options. The “as-is” phrase means that the seller does not want to do any repairs on the home or provide a credit off the price. However, the buyer can decide to purchase the home as it is and depending on the repairs that need to be done, or they can wait to see the results after the home inspection has been done.
  • Appraisal: An appraisal is the value of a property that is done by a person that is authorized. An appraisal is usually required before any real estate purchase, especially for insurance, taxes, and loans. To get an accurate appraisal, the professional will review properties that are similar that have been sold recently. The square footage of the home, bedroom numbers, bathroom numbers, and the age of the property will help determine the real estate appraisal value.
  • Listing Agent & Buyer’s Agent: A listing agent will represent the seller of the property and the buyer’s agent will represent the buyer. A buyer’s agent can also be called the purchasing agent, too. They will assist the buyer in finding appropriate properties in the price range and pay attention to the buyer’s preferences for a home.
  • Closing: The closing is also known as a settlement, and this is the last step with purchasing real estate. When it is closing day, it means the buyer is the official owner of the property.
  • Days on Market (DOM): Days on Market or DOM is the number of days the real estate property has been listed until it is sold. The difference between DOM and Cumulative Days on Market Days can sometimes vary.
  • Due Diligence: Due diligence is the time period from when the purchaser and/or investor access the property that they are interested in buying. During that time, they will receive a full disclosure about the real estate property’s facts before completing the purchase with the seller.
  • Escrow Holder: An escrow agent is a third party that is neutral during any real estate transaction. The escrow holder will be holding the funds along with any assets until both the seller and buyer are satisfied with the purchase agreement. Once all have agreed with any obligations, then the funds will be released to the seller and the sale is closed.
  • Homeowners Association (HOA): A homeowner’s association or HOA is the organization that will manage the property, and this usually occurs with condos, gated communities, or a subdivision. The HOA will have their own rules. Once someone purchases a property, they will become part of the HOA and will be required to pay HOA dues or fees.
