Dealing With Offers


When selling your home, there are few things more exciting than receiving an offer.  That means someone is interested in your property and has prepared a contract to buy and sell.

So, what is an offer?

An offer is 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”.  For example, a condition/contingency may read “conditional on the property passing a home inspection” or “contingent on the buyer’s ability to arrange financing”.
Ideally, when you receive an offer, you will want to sell your house to that buyer for the highest price possible.  In addition, you’ll want to make sure there are no potential problems that might prevent the transaction from closing – such as the buyer being unable to arrange financing.

I realize this may sound complicated.  Don’t worry, as your Realtor, I’ll take care of all the details.

For example, I will:

  • Review the offer with you and clearly explain the contract.
  • Give you my professional assessment as to the quality of the offer.  If there are elements that could be an issue, I’ll point them out to you.
  • Advise you on whether to accept the offer, reject the offer, or make a counter-offer.
  • Prepare a counter-offer, if necessary, without risking the sale slipping through your fingers
  • Skillfully negotiate with the buyer’s agent, so you sell your house for the highest price possible.
  • Prepare all the necessary documents and work closely with the buyer’s agent, to make sure the transaction flows smoothly.
  • Communicate with you throughout the entire process.  You’re never in the dark when you work with me.
