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.
Walt Poff is the best Realtor® that we have ever found. As the result of his innovative and creative marketing, along with all of his resourceful ideas, we sold our home for a wonderful price only 36 days after we listed it with him. We even had two buyers at the same time, both with acceptable offers. Our home had previously been on the market for two years, listed with two other Realtors®, and nothing happened. Walt is reachable seven days a week and at all hours of the day and evening. Walt is without a doubt the hardest working and most professional Realtor® that we have ever dealt with.Marilyn Kreger
