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.
When I decided to accept a job in Sewanee, TN, I didn't have much time to waste finding a house to purchase. When I asked around for a realtor who was familiar with Sewanee's real estate market, who was responsive to phone calls and emails, and who could transact business efficiently, June Weber came highly recommended to me by several local residents who'd worked with her. June did not disappoint. I have worked with real estate agents throughout the east coast, and without a doubt, June Weber has been the best. I endorse her without reservation.wmarichalgentry
