Accepting an Offer

The Price Is Not Always Right

“The higher the price, the better the offer.” Don’t be fooled by this popular misconception.

Price is not always the determining faction to accepting an offer:

  • The initial offer is usually not final.
  • There are many terms and conditions that may influence the final price.

I will help you thoroughly evaluate every proposal without compromising your marketing position.

Negotiating the Right Way

I take the responsibility of negotiating contract terms very seriously. It is my job to find a “win/win” agreement that is beneficial to everyone involved. You may deal with multiple offers before agreeing to the one that both you and I agree is most suitable to you. I guarantee that you will receive a thorough and objective assessment of every offer.

The Initial Agreement and Deposit

An effective agreement is a legal arrangement between a potential purchaser and the seller. In order to be legally binding, and laws vary from State to State, the agreement requires consideration (initial and additional deposit). These monies are held in an Escrow account pending fulfillment of conditions or contingencies in the agreement.

To streamline the process be sure to:

  • Keep written records of everything

Transcribe all verbal agreement, including counter-offers and addendums. Convert them to written agreements signed by both parties. I will assist you in drafting any/all paperwork, making sure you have copies of everything.

  • Stick to the schedule

Once you have chosen an offer, you and the buyer will have a timeline to mark every stage in closing the real estate contract. Meeting these requirements ensures that each party is not in breach of their agreement. I will keep you constantly updated during this process to make sure you are prepared and that the negotiations flow smoothly.
