Making An Offer

Once you have found the property you want, we will write a purchase agreement. While much of the agreement is standard, there are a few areas that we can negotiate:

The Price

What you offer on a property depends on a number of factors including its condition, length of time on the market, buyer activity, and the urgency of the seller. While some buyers want to make a low offer just to see if the seller accepts, this often isn't a smart choice as the seller may be insulted and decide not to negotiate at all.

 

The Move-in Date

If you can be flexible on the possession date, the seller will be more apt to choose your offer over others.

Additional Property

Often, the seller plans on leaving major appliances in the home; however, which items stay or go is often a matter of negotiation.

We will present your offer to the listing agent and / or seller. The seller will then do one of the following:

  • Accept the offer

  • Reject the offer

  • Counter the offer with changes

By far, the most common is the counteroffer. In these cases, our experience and negotiating skills become powerful in representing your best interests. Furthermore, our team has undergone special training and education to acquire our Certified Negotiation Expert designation which gives us unsurpassed leverage for our clients’ deals.

 

When a counteroffer is presented, we will work together to review each specific area of it, to make sure that we move forward with your goals in mind and ensure that we negotiate the best possible price & terms on your behalf.
