RECEIVING AN OFFER

Okay ! This is it ! You're almost done ! Here are a few things to keep in mind when you receive an offer:

  •   When you receive the first offer remember that the buyers have usually been looking for a while and know when a new house is for sale.  They know the market.  Most sellers refuse the first offer without even negotiating it.  Later on they end up selling for less.

  •  Look seriously at all offers.  Toughen up and be prepared for low offers.  Most sellers are insulted by low offers.  Sit down, take a breath and put the figures down on paper.  Sometimes with a little negotiating, things can be worked out.  You can counteroffer or we can let the buyer know that the offer was too low but if they would like to put in another offer you would be willing to consider it.  Also remember to weigh the importance of contingencies in each offer.

Below is a list of expenses that could be involved in a sale and a Net Proceeds Estimate that can be used to figure out approximately what you will walk away with.  Please feel free to call or email me if you would like me to figure it out for you.
