Accepting An Offer


 

  

The Price Is Not Always Right.

“The higher the sale price, the better the offer.” Nope do not let yourself be fooled by this popular delusion. Price is not always the determining factor when accepting an offer for several important reasons: the initial offer is usually not final, and there are a number of terms and conditions that may influence the final outcome of a price. We are here to help you carefully weigh every offer without missing out on the highest and best offer.

Negotiating The Right Way.

We take the ethical duty of honestly negotiating contract terms very seriously. It is our job to find a the best offer that best fits your needs.  You may even have to deal with multiple offers before choosing the one you find best for you – and as your agents, we will guarantee a comprehensive and objective assessment of each offer to help you make the right choice.

The Initial Agreement and Deposit.

An effective purchase contract is a legal binding contract between potential parties. Laws will vary from state to state, but to be a legal and binding contract, the purchase contract requires consideration or in the case of real estate, money. This consideration, also called the earnest money deposit, will be held by the escrow office pending the completion of all conditions and contingencies in the purchase contract.

Keep written records of everything.
For the sake of clarity, it will be extremely important to know that all agreements including counter-offers and addendums, will be written agreements to be signed by all parties. We will assist you by drafting all the paperwork for your sale and make sure that you have copies of everything.

Stick to the schedule.
Now that you have chosen your offer, you and the buyer will be given a timeline to mark every stage in the process of closing the real estate contract. Meeting the requirements on time ensures a smoother flow of negotiations and also ensures that each party involved is not in breach of their agreements. During the process we will keep you constantly updated so you will always be prepared for the next step.
