There’s More To It Than Price
While it’s important, price isn’t always the determining factor when accepting an offer…for several reasons: first of all, the initial offer is usually not the last offer and also there are a number of terms and conditions that may influence the final outcome of a price. We will help you thoroughly evaluate every proposal without compromising your marketing position.
Fairly negotiating contractual terms is something we take very seriously. Our job is to find an 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.
Agreement and Deposit
An effective agreement is a legal arrangement between a potential purchaser and the seller. Laws vary from state to state, but in order to be a legally, binding agreement, the agreement may require consideration. This consideration (initial and additional deposit) is to be held in the closing agent’s escrow account pending the fulfillment of conditions or contingencies in the effective agreement.
Keep in mind the following to make the process run smoothly:
- Keep written records of everything. It will be extremely useful to transcribe all verbal agreements including counter-offers and addendums, and convert them to written agreements to be signed by both parties. We will assist you in drafting all the paperwork for your sale and make sure that you have copies of everything.
- Stay on task. Now that you’ve selected the 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 also ensures that each party involved is not in breach of their agreements. During the process we will keep you constantly updated so you always will be ready for the next step.
