Handling Offers On Your Home

This Is Where a Realtor’s Skill Shines or Stinks!

When selling your home there are very few things more exciting than receiving an offer. That means someone is interested in your property and has prepared a formal offer to buy it.

What is an offer, exactly?

It’s simply a legal document that shows the price the buyer is offering to pay, which may or may not be the same as your listing price. An offer will include other details, such as the requested closing date, and may also include one or more conditions, such as “conditional on the property passing a home inspection.”

As well, you’ll want to make sure there are no potential problems that might prevent the sale from closing – such as the buyer being unable to arrange to finance, even if they say they have financing or they did not put that condition in their offer!

We realize this may sound complicated, but don’t worry, as professionals,  we and our administration team take care of all the details. For example, we will:

  • Review the offer with you and explain everything clearly.
  • Give you our professional assessment as to the quality of the offer. If there are things that concern us, we’ll point them out to you.
  • Advise you on whether to accept the offer, reject the offer, or make a counter-offer.
  • Prepare a counter-offer, if necessary, that will get you a better price or closing date, without risking the sale one iota.
  • Skillfully negotiate with the buyer and their Realtor on your behalf, so you sell your home.
  • Prepare all the necessary documents, and work closely with the buyer and his or her Realtor,  your lawyer and mortgage provider to make sure the transaction goes through smoothly.
  • Communicate with you throughout the entire process. You’re never in the dark when you work with us.
  • We actually go through the above process with you BEFORE we even get an offer, we actually do this with you when we take the listing. We want you to be aware of what may take place and prepare you so that when we receive an offer, you are more relaxed, know the process and being able to think more clearly.

If not prepared, then you have to repair!

Selling is our expertise.
