When reading an offer, keep in mind that you are out to get the best price AND the best terms for you. If you focus solely on the price, you may overlook terms that could be favorable to you as a buyer.
Some terms that may work in your favor:
higher-than-market-interest in a second mortgage for your home
the buyer will pay for most or all of the closing costs
the buyer will take care of any repairs
quick close - the buyer is pre-approved and ready to close in a timeframe that best suits you
When reading through offers, remember to look at the whole package. Take the time that you need to assess what is being offered and if it meets your needs.
Steve Sexauer is passionate about real estate. We listed with Steve to sell property in St. Petersburg. As I live in Seattle, WA I needed a partner in this endeavor who would truly help me through the process long distance. Steve rose to the challenge. He literally was our feet on the street, he located and obtained quotes for work we needed on the property to prepare it for sale. Steve became our project manager when a new roof was installed. He provided frequent updates and with every offer we had a one on one call to discuss the offers and determine the next steps. I felt completely engaged and included in the process, right up to CLOSING in just over 2 months for a price over list! Steve is amazing and I'd highly recommend him for your real estate needs.patsinwa
