DEALING WITH OFFERS
Your Agent Will Handle all the Details
When selling your house, there are few things more exciting than receiving an offer. That means someone is interested in your property and has prepared a formal offer to buy it.
What is an offer, exactly?
It’s simply a legal document that shows the price the buyer is proposing to pay, which may or may not be the same as your listing price. An offer will include other details, such as the requested closing date, and may also include one or more conditions, such as “conditional on the property passing a home inspection.”
Ideally, when you receive an offer, you will want to sell your house to that buyer for the highest price possible, but terms are just as important. Does the buyer have to put their house on the market to get the funds to buy yours? Does the buyer have to wait for a lease to expire? Depending on your situation price and terms are equally important. In addition, you’ll want to make sure there are no potential problems that might prevent the deal from closing – such as the buyer being unable to arrange financing.
I realize this may sound complicated. Don’t worry. As your real estate agent, I’ll take care of all the details. For example, I will:
- Review the offer with you and explain everything clearly
- Give you my professional assessment as to the quality of the offer. If there are things that concern me, I’ll point them out to you
- Prepare a counter-offer, if necessary, that gets you a better deal, without risking the sale slipping through your fingers
- Skillfully negotiate with the buyer on your behalf, so you sell your house for the highest price possible
- Prepare all the necessary documents, and work closely with the buyer and his or her agent, to make sure the transaction goes through smoothly
- Communicate with you throughout the entire process. You’re never in the dark when you work with me
Selling your house for the best price possible is my expertise, especially in this local market.
