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.
“I have purchased approximately 12 different homes throughout my GE career as I have moved from city to city. Without question, Perry would be the agent that I would rate number one in all of those dealings. He is a true expert. His primary concern was for my wife and I, finding the right home, and constructing the proper offer. His attention to detail, knowledge of the community, and links to the market environment made us feel totally comfortable in the transaction. I have recommended him to personal friends and associates. It is also worth noting that his name was given to me by a financial institution in the area, that said…”Perry is the person you want to call. Not only do we have a very positive view, but we continuously hear wonderful comments from those that have worked with him.”Marc Chini, Human Resources at Synchrony Financial
