Handing Keys OverSelling Your Home

The Offer

An acceptable offer depends on many different things:

  • Is the proposed offer near the asking price?
  • The timeframe of the seller – Does the seller have another house payment? Insurance?
  • Does the owner have enough time to wait for the agent to bring them more potential buyers?
  • What if the home is listed and never receives a single offer?
  • What if several offers are received at the same time?

The Counter-Offer

When potential buyers are searching for a home, they can respond in three different ways to the seller(s):

  • This home is not what we were looking for. We are not interested in the property.
  • We are interested in the home and we will purchase the property on the buyer's terms per the real estate agreement.
  • We are interested in the home, but here is our counter–offer for the property.

Negotiating

The negotiation process can at times seem very complicated. However, I have years of experience negotiating for both buyers and sellers and I will work to make the process as hassle-free as possible.

During the negotiating process of the sale of a home, the seller can react in one of three different ways:

  1. Accept the buyer's proposed offer
  2. Decline the buyer's offer
  3. Make a new counter–offer
