You’ve Received an Offer

A Buyer Has Made an Offer. What’s Next?

One day soon, I will call you to let you know that I have received an offer to purchase your home. The offer will include several terms and conditions that you will want to consider: Price, Due Diligence Fee and Earnest Money Deposit, Due Diligence Date and Closing Date, the type of financing the Buyer will use to buy the house, personal property that the Buyer may ask to be included in the price (i.e. washer, dryer, refrigerator), seller-paid closing costs, and perhaps others. We will review the offer together, evaluate each element, and in most cases I will advise you about any revisions to include in a counter-offer back to the buyer.

An Experienced Negotiator Will Be On Your Side

There may be several rounds of negotiations before we achieve a mutually satisfactory set of terms and conditions. There may, of course, be some cases in which the Buyer and Seller are simply too far apart and are not able to reach a final agreement. That’s why having a skilled negotiator representing your interests is critical to reaching agreement quickly.
