Big a move as it is, making an offer can be very simple to manage. First, you need to be prepared to negotiate and lower the list price to an affordable sales price. A good realtor can do that for you effectively and even advise you on the amount to offer.
Most sellers will reject your offer if it is too low. So ask your realtor to give you an ‘acceptable’ value that the seller can either accept or base a counteroffer on. Once you agree on the price (with the seller), you may want to proceed to survey, appraisal and disclosures. Again, your realtor will be a key player in ensuring all these happen.
You may need to put some “good faith deposit” down – usually anything between $1,000 and $5,000 and also provide a pre-approval letter or proof of cash for the seller to take the property off the market. That will confirm that the property is yours, you can now proceed to arrange for payment. Meanwhile, your realtor will be working on the contract, any other paperwork, and planning for closing.
That is a mere sketch of the whole offer process, but at least you get the idea. Instead of doing it alone, we can help make it easier. Give us a call today.
