Handling Offers

When negotiating an offer, we will follow this systematic approach.

Contract Negotiations

We will:

  • Ask the right questions when the offer is presented to get an idea of the buyer's sincerity and financial situation.
  • Review the contract and your obligations before you sign.
  • Estimate your net proceeds based on a specific offer.
  • Help you handle the issue of "possession."
  • Explain how contingencies work.
  • Explain the ramifications of pest inspection, structural & radon reports.
  • Explain your responsibilities regarding the condition of the property.
  • Verify that the buyers have received all appropriate disclosures.
  • Orchestrate the offer process to arrange "back-up" offers when possible.

Monitoring and Managing the Process

We will:

  • Stay in constant communication with the buyer's agent to ensure a smooth transaction.
  • Coordinate the details of the transaction with the bank and attorneys.
  • Follow up closely on the progress of the buyer's loan.
  • Facilitate the appraisal process.
  • Monitor contingency removal dates closely and discuss these with you.
  • Advise you regarding specific buyer requests related to structural pest control and general structural inspections.
  • Help you if conflicts or impasses with the buyer arise.
  • Be present with you at the closing to ensure a smooth transfer.
