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.
Ben is great! He was willing to drive all around creation to show us places, and had great “extra hands” when he couldn’t make it himself. Once we got into negotiations, he worked hard and fast to make sure we got the best deal possible and he gave us good advice as to how to handle negotiations. When time became an issue, he worked hard to make sure everyone was on schedule. We would definitely work with Ben again. Thank you for getting us our first family home!Stephanie Heath
