Making An Offer
Before making an offer to purchase a home, it is important to be pre-qualified or pre-approved by a mortgage lender unless you're paying in cash. A pre-approval letter is a powerful negotiating tool that shows the seller you're financially capable of purchasing the property.
Here's a step-by-step guide to the offer-making process:
1. First, you'll view a home for sale and decide whether you want to make an offer or not.
2. Afterwards, our team will perform a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) of the property to help you determine a solid offer price. We will look at the property in-depth with information that is not available to the public to ensure you have the best experience possible. Things like history, taxes, comparable properties, title documents, Real Property Report (RPR) and compliance certificates.
3. We will also assist you by facilitating the offer in writing and making sure you are protected before sending it to the seller.
The seller will respond in one of the following three ways:
1. The seller simply accepts the offer! You both have signed the offer to purchase, now you're under contract and on your way to buying a home!
2. The seller has the option to make a counter offer, so you can either accept the counter offer or make a new offer, or you can walk away if you feel it’s not going anywhere.
3. The seller can decline the offer. So, you can either try to make a more attractive offer or find another property.
