Guide to Handling Offers

When an offer is received on your property, I will present it to you on a timely basis. I will:

  • Ask the appropriate questions when the offer is presented to get an idea of the buyer's sincerity and financial situation.
  • Review the contract with you to assure that you understand all of your options and obligations.
  • Review in detail any addenda to the contract again making sure that you understand all implications.
  • Review any contingencies and explain how they work.
  • Estimate your net proceeds based on a specific offer.
  • Help you handle the issue of "closing" and "possession".
  • Explain the ramifications of pest and structural inspections.
  • Explain your responsibilities regarding the condition of the property.
  • Verify that the buyers have received all appropriate disclosures.
  • Help you formulate any counter offers.
  • Manage the offer process to arrange "back-up" offers when possible.
