The Process of Making an Offer
The price we go in with is critical. You want it to reflect the true market value of the property so the seller will take your offer seriously. On the other hand, you don’t want to go in too high and risk overpaying for the home.
When you decide to make an offer, here’s what typically happens:
- The first step is preparing the Offer. This is where we help you determine how much to offer. We’ll recommend a price that has the best chance of being accepted by the seller, without over-paying for the home.
- We will also include any terms that you need, for example: closing date, escrow deposit, inspection period, closing costs, and addendums specific to your transaction.
- Obviously, sellers prefer offers that have no conditions. However, we may want to include conditions that are in your best interest. We’ll talk more in depth about these when preparing your offer.
- We’ll prepare the necessary documents and present your offer to the seller and his or her real estate agent.
- If the offer isn’t accepted, or if the seller makes a counter-offer, we’ll work together to evaluate and skillfully negotiate on your behalf.
- We’ll communicate with you throughout the entire process. You’re never in the dark when you work with us.
- Once the seller agrees to your deal, we’ll help you through important dates and deadlines and removal of any conditions to get you to the closing table. Then, the home is yours. Congratulations!
We realize that making an offer can seem like the nail-biting part of the process. It doesn’t have to be. That’s the advantage of selecting a real estate agent with knowledge, skills and experience. When you go after a property you really want, you can take comfort in knowing you have an expert on your side… someone who knows how to get that home for you.
