Accepting an Offer

The Price Is Not Always Right.

“The higher the price, the better the offer.” Do not let yourself be fooled by this popular misconception. Price is not always the determining factor when accepting an offer for several important reasons. The terms of an offer, such as cash vs. financing, or the need for a buyer to sell their home first could be important considerations. Our professionals will help you thoroughly evaluate every proposal without compromising your marketing position.

Negotiating The Right Way.

We take the ethical responsibility of fairly negotiating contractual terms very seriously. It is our job to find a win-win agreement that is beneficial to all parties involved. You may even have to deal with multiple offers before ratifying the one you judge to be the most suitable for you – and as your agents, we will guarantee a thorough and objective assessment of each offer to help you make the right choice.

The Initial Agreement and Deposit.

A purchase and sale agreement is a legal arrangement between a potential purchaser and the property’s seller. Part of that contract is an earnest money deposit that is held in escrow until the closing. The earnest money deposit serves to protect the seller from frivolous behavior on the part of the buyer.The Purchase and Sale agreement spells out specific terms for how that deposit protects the interest of each party.

Stick to the schedule. Once you have accepted an offer, you and the buyer will be given a timeline to mark every stage in the process of closing the real estate contract. Meeting the requirements on time ensures a smoother flow of negotiations and ensures that each party involved is not in breach of their agreements. During the process we will keep you updated so you will always be prepared for the next step.
